Hi everyone.

I am looking for a cake recipe from my childhood. On our birthdays my mom always had a baker make our cakes. This person always baked a white sheet cake and had strawberry filling in the middle.

I am looking for the strawberry filling recipe. It was a creamy pink color and was thick like an icing, with whole strawberries in it.

Anyone got any ideas?? My mom is wanting me to make a cake like this.

Thanks
Rhonda

That sounds really good. did the frosting filling taste like strawberries too? maybe it was just a strawberry extract mixed with some buttercream with fresh berries in it.

have you experimented mixing anything together yet? I would like to know if you fine what you're looking for: [email protected]

I have a recipe posted on here, it's fresh strawberries with whipped cream topping and a reg size box of strawberry jello mixed all together. It thick as you said and has a pink color and taste so good. You can eat it alone, goes real good with white cake.

panchanewjersey .... I will try this recipe out, but do have a question. You don't dissolve the jello first? Would it not taste grainy?? Sorry to be a little dense here, but I am a newbie here!!


Boofycakes.... I have tried a couple of different combo's but nothing tastes like I remember. Mixing confectioners sugar and strawberries is too thin. This was very light and airy ....but again, this is from my childhood. I may not be remembering the way it really was. ( 35 years ago!!! LOL)

Could it be strawberry buttercream try this recipe that I use it is delicious and sounds like what you describe

Strawberry buttercream

- 1 cup of butter softened
- 1 32oz pkg of powdered sugar
- 1 cup of finely chopped fresh strawberries

beat butter at med. speed until fluffy, then add powdered sugar and strawberries beat at low speed until creamy. if too thin add more sugar if to thoic add more strawberries.


I hope you like it icon_smile.gif it's simple but good

I am not sure how to edit on this forum, but thought you might like to know that I " played " last night.

I baked a French Vanilla ( I cheated....a box! ) and frosted with just a vanilla buttercream frosting. But...the filling for the middle.... I took some of the buttercream and mixed in some strawberry extract, and then took some strawberry jello and dissolved it in a few tsp. of HOT water, then let it cool and mixed it in as well.

My mom said the cake was GREAT!! and the filling was " almost " there, but it seems this baker used whole strawberries in his. Mom said that was his secret...he used whole strawberries, conf. sugar, and it was as thick as buttercream.

So next time I will put in some real strawberries.

i use my juicer to make strawberry juice instead of jello. it will give you a truer strawberry flavor

Actually when you mix it all together and put in frig is dissolves put you have to leave it in for a 2 hours atleast, to chill anf firm up. But no it actually dissolves real good and tastes so good. You can try a small batch of it to test it first, just make a cup of it and see if you like it.
