Hi! I am making a cake for a Sat. party, but my friend will be picking up on Friday. Hence, no refrigeration. Most of the fillings I do require refrigeration. I was going to do a bettercreme filling, but the client doesn't want a mousse or creamy filling...they just want like a jam filling (and I dislike sleeved fillings). I am at a loss...would just a strawberry, sugar, and cornstarch filling be fine? Thanks for your help!!

When I do a strawberry filling, I've just crumb-coated, done strawberry jam and sliced strawberries on top of that. I've left out decorated for a couple of days with no issues...

I dont like working with cream cheese icing, but if thats what the customer wants i will. Get a good quality strawberry jam and use it, its what they are expecting. I always put a thin layer of buttercream down first then the jam type fillings.

Yep, jam. icon_smile.gif

Smucker's even says on their website that while their jams don't require refrigeration, they put it on their label because it helps the product last longer.

Thanks for all your help! Any recommendations for "good" jam -- we just use Smucker's strawberry from Costco. Thanks!
