Do cakes with fresh, sliced strawberries as a filling have to be refrigerated?
Thanks in advance
yes they do.
something i found on the web:
Strawberries, like most other berries, won't ripen any further once they're pulled from the vine. Nothing you can do at home will make a green berry ripen. And once the berry cap is pulled, it will deteriorate very quickly. You can hold ripe strawberries in the refrigerator a day or two and still have pretty good berries, but the best thing to do is to eat strawberries the same day you buy them.
Diane - thanks for posting that information. It's really good to know that!
