I was asked to make a baby shower cake that is made with strawberry shortcake. How do I do that? How do I prevent the juice from soaking the cake? Do I use fresh or cooked strawberries? Help?
Thankl you

You use fresh sliced strawberries and a strawberry glaze. The sugary glaze acts as a barrier to prevent juice from overwhelming the cake. Make sure to use a buttercream barrier to outline the cake before placing the strawberries and glaze in the middle. It will prevent if from falling/squishing out of the sides. Good Luck! It will be yummy! princess.gif

you could just use sleeve strawberry perserves, that way it will be thicker and not be runny or soak the cake.

I used raspberry preserves in a cake not too long ago and it was delicious and so easy. I'm sure that strawberry preserves would be great and easy as well!

There are great strawberry fillings on this site. I used one in June here (it was hot), and there was no soaking in the cake.

I've also used a strawberry filling recipe from this site (with the White Almond Sour Cream Cake - mmm!) and it turned out great, no soaking. I'd just suggest piping a line of buttercream around the edges of the layers before putting in the filling so you'll have a 'barrier' and the filling won't ooze out. Good luck!
