I'm new to this site but already enjoying it so much. I wanted to know if anyone knew of a simple and tasty strawberry filling to layer between cake made from real strawberries, not the gel? Thanks for any help I receive.
Welcome to CC! Here is the one I use, it is very easy and tastes great. I usually use OJ in place of the liquour though ....
Hope this helps!!
Does this strawberry filling recipe thicken good? I mean if I make a dam and fill in with this filling alone, it shouldnt ooze out the sides right? I have one that doesnt thicken enough so when Im using layers I have a problem.
Oh yeah...it thickens just fine! It seems to thicken even more once it has cooled also! I haven't had any problems with it ozzing out at all!
Thank you Mrs. Missey for the welcome and the recipe. I am going to try. Also, this is for a tiered cake (1st time). Can I layer w/strawberry filling and freeze for couple of days? Will it thaw okay or is it safer to prepare day before and just refrigerate? I just don't want the cake layers to become overly soggy.
I usually bake and freeze my cakes but I don't do the filling part until the day that I thaw the cakes. It may work just fine doing it ahead of time but I have never tried doing it that way. Sorry, I know that is not much help!!
Yah, wouldnt fill them until your ready to cover them with either b/c or fondant. Freezing will make your filling a bit watery and you would have some leaking out of your tiers when they thaw. Your better to do it right beforehand.
Thank you so much for the advice. This really helps alot.
I got this amazing fresh strawberry filling recipe from mamajan61. Just send her a message and she would be more than happy to give you the recipe. I dont want to give out her recipe, its a family recipe. But it is the most amazing straw filling I have tried so far.
