Is there a way to put 2 filling flavors (ex. lemon cream chees filling and raspberry preserves) in between cake layers without the cake sliding and fallling off? I had a (mis)adventure with this yesterday and was wondering if anyone had any tips for me. TIA!
Do you mean putting both fillings in the same section of cake or having the cake torted so there is a layer of raspberry then cake then cream cheese then cake then raspberry and then cake - put together and iced? If you mean two filling flavors in the same layer and not torted I would either stir them together or try sandwiching the rasberry between the cream cheese. I would reccomend a good stiff buttercream dam to hold the fillings in place.and give the cake something to stick to.
I've done that with my last cake actually, I made a buttercream dam around the circumference and filled in the middle with buttercream, not as high as the dam. Then I spread caramel over the buttercream middle, just under the dam height. When I added the next layer it was perfect, no slippage...of course, customer didn't offer me a slice, so I'm not sure how it appeared when sliced, haha, but he assured me he loved it!
Yes, it can be done. Maybe you used too much filling causing the problem.
The best way would be to torte the two layers & use one filling each, but you can do as the other posters have said, using a dam of icing to hold the filling in. This should be made w/tip 12 around the edge of the cake then filling placed inside that line. Never go higher than the dam is.
I did this on a cake for a friend's 25th birthday. Like the others have said i made a dam around the circumference of the cake and then I did another towards the middle, filled in with lemon curd and strawberries. When we cut the cake it made a cool stripped effect that everyone loved.
I do it the way cake-angel does it.
The dam technique works everytime!
Well, I did it as was suggested, so now I'm just thinking that I overfilled it somehow (but it didn't go over the top edge of dam). Hmm... I must experiment more.... Thanks for your replies.
