You can mix preserves/jam with buttercream and that makes a really nice filling. Blueberry jam and icing is sooooo yummy!

Not sure of the shelf life or refrigeration requirement ... jellies/jams need to be refrigerated after opening because they tend to mold pretty fast. I use the sleeve fillings that have a shelf life just this side of forever.

I use frozen peaches/strawberries/blueberries/raspberries, whatever fruit really, and put them in a pot with some sugar, vanilla, cornstrach and other flavorings. Boil until it reaches the consistancy of a thick jelly. It does have to be refridgerated, but the fillings come out so fresh tasting, that I get a TON of compliments.

Make sure that if you get whole fruits that you cut them up into bite size pieces.

I use jam (eep! Typo and I put HAM! Ugh! What a nasty filling! icon_lol.gif) all the time and I don't refrigerate my cakes. Of course, they only sit out for a day or so, then they're gone icon_wink.gif I like to use pie filling, too. Like Strawberry pie filling, and lemon pie filling icon_biggrin.gif YUM!

This is a delicious recipe that I've used this summer for strawberry mousse. You could probably change the flavor with a different gelatin and fresh fruit. It holds up really well and it tastes incredible...with refrigeration it lasts at least 2 weeks. Enjoy:

1 pkg. (8 oz.) Cream Cheese softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup boiling water
1 pkg. Strawberry Flavored Jello
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups thawed COOL WHIP, divided
2 cups sliced strawberries

BEAT cream cheese and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on low speed until well blended; set aside.

STIR boiling water into dry gelatin mix in small bowl at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Add cold water; stir until slightly thickened. Gradually add to cream cheese mixture, beating after each addition until well blended. Gently stir in 1-1/2 cups of the whipped topping and the strawberries.

I too have wondered about the shelf life of these fillings. 1) When you have some leftover from the sleeve, how long can you leave this in the fridge? 2) For the filling that ends up in the cake, how long until the cake goes bad?

How long does this keep? I made some three weeks ago and kept in fridge, actually wound up not using it. Do you think it's still good?

I use mostly pastry pride and any fresh fruit or canned because it's not sweet at all (it need to be in the fridge) but now that I read FlyGirl08 recipe with cream cheese sounds delicious and I think I'll try it soon icon_smile.gif

Mine never stays around long enough to go bad!!! My family likes to eat the leftovers on toast, or pancakes, or stuffed into crepes.

You can buy a big plastic bag of filling that is referred to as a sleeve because of its "sleeve" shape from cake supply places... thumbs_up.gif
