I am getting ready to do my first wedding cake and they want raspeberry filling in white cake and I was just wondering what people use for the filling. I was told by a friend that does cakes that she just uses jam. Just wondering if there is something better or if this is what most people use. Thanks!
Also any suggestions on how much filling to use and other tips would be very helpful. I have filled cakes before but it has always just been with more frosting. Thanks again.
I buy most of my fillings from
they have over 12 differant types of filling to choose from (lemon, raspberry, blueberry, apricot, banana cream, etc). They come in sleeves and you store in pantry (cool/dark place).
For a lemon cake with raspberry filling I used seedless raspberry jam... you can also mix the jam with some BC as well.. I have been wanting to order some of the sleeve fillings but I dont get much call for them.... mainly 1 layer sheet cakes..
A while back I made a batch of cream cheese frosting and added some rasberry jello... and it was so good in the middle of white cake. I would make a dam with your buttercream, do a thin layer of jam, and then a good layer of the rasberry cream cheese.
I mix my homemade raspberry freezer jam (I hate the store bought stuff!) and mixed it with cream cheese and got rave reviews!
After I had a bride and groom test several different raspberry fillings (jam, jam with buttercream, Wilton's raspberry cream recipe, and store bought raspberry filling) they chose a cream cheese frosting that had frozen (and thawed) raspberries mixed in. (It was my favorite too.)
I like the one on this site where you just mix 1 box cream cheese, a jar and a half of polaner rasberry, and a tub of coolwhip, yuuumy!
