I want to make a filling out of blackberry preserves. Do I need to mix it with anything or does it go right on the cake? I am fairly new at this and never filled a cake. Any advise??? Thanks

I prefere to use all my fruit filling straight.
I know many people mix it w/b'cream or whipped topping type icings for a 'mousse'.
Of course when mixed the flavor is much less intense.
I used some blackberry jam once in a choco cake as that was *all* I had and everyone loved iticon_smile.gif

Thanks kakeladi, I will try it straight and see how it turns out.

I've used preserves straight... turns out really well!! As a precaution, I put a VERY thin layer of buttercream on the cake first, just to keep the preserves from soaking in, but that's just me. And I do mean... THIN. You can also use a pie filling type which works well.

Make sure you stir up the preserves first to "loosen" them, helps with spreading. Also, a little goes a long way! I always get the seedless kind for blackberry, raspberry, and strawberry b/c who wants to pick seeds out of their teeth when eating cake?
