How do I make a banana split filling? I told my client Id look into it. They want banana and strawberry in the filling. I dont want to just mash it all together or it would look pretty gross. Should I layer fillings?? Maybe banana buttercream and strawberry on top?? What do you think?

It may still end up getting "mashed" together. What if you did a ring of banana, a ring of strawberry, ring of banana, ring of strawberry. I can't figure out how to explain it, but start with some strawberry in the center then a ring of banana, then strawberry, then banana again (going out towards the edge of the layer.

I made one not too long ago for a family function.
I torted into 3 cake layers, spread a thin layer of hot fudge ice cream topping on the bottom layer. Made vanilla pastry cream, added a little bit of banana flavoring to that. Spread a layer of that over the chocolate, then placed sliced fresh banana and strawberries on top. Repeat. Iced with stabalized whipped cream.

it stayed together nicely and the flavor was awesome.

those are some good ideas. I've never heard of banana split filling. Thanks.

Wow this sounds so YUMMY!!! You could do a layer of sliced bananas and then make a strawberry filling using a little bit of strawberry jelly and icing.

I would go with the sleeved pastry fillings, both banana and strawberry are available. Depending on how many layers you have, you can put them in different layers. This way, the cake will not have to be refrigerated and no worry of bananas turning brown.

I'm having trouble finding the recipe - my m-i-l and s-i-l babysat twice in the past few weeks for my kids and when they do, they inevitably "clean" my house and it takes me time to find everything. They don't like when papers are out and unless I leave certain things out in view I forget about them!

I know I found the recipe on-line and have been wanting to try it, but I can't seem to find one that looks familiar now, however here are two that sound good. http://www.recipezaar.com/245883 and http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/cat/1762/0.shtml.

HTH

If you try them, let me know how they come out.

Will do. No problem. Hope they're good.

Actually, it's going to be a while before I make them as I have my TD cake that must be eaten before I do anymore baking! lol
