I bought some sleeve lemon filling today and am curious about how long it lasts. I know I won't kneed all of it for the cake I'm making, but how long after I open it can I use it? Also, how do you store the leftovers?

thanks.

Here is some info I found on a website when I had the same question:

Cake Fillings for torting cakes, Pastry, Candies etc - 2 lb - Comes in a plastic sleeve, snip off the end and use. Cake does not need to be refrigerated as with jellies. Pastry filling contains preservatives to keep down the bacteria that can lead to food poisoning! The cream cheese is artificial and harmless. Made by Henry & Henry. Refrigerate after opening to prolong shelf life. Can be frozen up to 3 times before turning to syrup.

Yah, in the frig until it dries out........months. I always put my open ones into a zip loc bag in the frig to help keep the hydrated longer.

The filling sleeves purchase from country kitchen sweet art are good for 3-6 months in the refrigerator after they have been opened.

Hi,
I have a quick question about the filling sleeves for those of you that have eaten some.

Do they taste like a homemade filling, or do they remind you of a filled donut?
Can you taste the preservatives?
What are your favorite flavors?
Are there any that you dislike?

I have never tasted preservatives in them.
My favorite were lemon, raspberry & bavarian creme
About the only one I can rememver that I didn't care for is blueberry but then I just don't like most anything blueberry.

Yep that's the filling in a donut.
