Can you use strawberry and or raspberry jelly straight out of the jar for a filling??? Thank you ..... Brenda
I've used it on top of buttercream for a filling, but never plain. It is kind of slippery and oozy.
Yes! Smuckers Simply Fruit- Red Raspberry (Seedless!) Everybody loves it. I also use Polaner All Fruit.
yes you can..... i have done this for years... right from the jar. seedless raspberry jam.... i put it on the cake layer.. use a small sharp pointed knife.. poke little holes first.. then spread the jam.. then put some of my buttercream on top of that.. makes the cake layer moist... very good...
Do you put the bc on the cake first or the jelly,,, that is what i was planning to do, buttercream filling with a touch of strawberry..l. thank you
thank you all,,, this will help out...
I was putting my bc first, then my jam. Maybe that's why I have the slipping, oozing problem. I'll have to try icer101's way next time!
I too have used jam as a filling - both with a buttercream layer on the bottom cake and without. It's been fine either way. I would recomment a good, strong icing dam, though, to help avoid bulging between layers.
