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...

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.
