Hello awesome CC members....

I have just rec'd an order for a choc cake w/ raspberry filling....I've never done raspberry filling, but it's the lady's fav. so I want to do it right. Please please let me know which recipes/tech. you like best and hopefully foolproof (I totally bombed making white choc mousse filling).

Also....what's the Blue Ribbon Choc. Cake like? Should I use that?

TIA icon_biggrin.gif

I just buy the premade raspberry filling in the long tube for 2.79 and so far have not had a problem with it. From talking to others I have learned that either you really, really like it or you hate it. I like it ~ taste like the fillings in donuts. It is also very sweet.

I bet others out there will have great recipes. icon_smile.gif

You can also use seedless raspberry jam as a filling. I know a lot of people who like chocolate and raspberry together.... it used to be the chic thing to do.

OH YES............. Seedless............... (good point debsuewoo) Made that mistake before too. Those tiny little seed were like eating rocks.

I hate learning from my mistakes...... :lol

For strawberry filling i use pre made desert glaze (strawberry flavored) it is made by litehouse and can be found in the produce section. I then add finely chopped fresh strawberries to it. It tastes GREAT and it is quick and easy.

There are lots of great filling recipes on www.ladycakes.com I have made the raspberry filling and it turned out great. Hope this helps. icon_smile.gif
