If i have a wedding cake due on Sat. They will cut it Sat eve. Can i fill the cake with fresh cut stawberries on Thursday or will they be mushy and nasty by then?
Is it just strawberries as filling or are they mixed with something (whipped cream or b/c).
I would think that the moisture from the strawberries (if not mixed with anything) would make the cake mushy and the strawberries themselves wouldn't last. Normally strawberries have a very short shelf live.
I found this on yahoo.answers:
"How long strawberries remain fresh depends how they were handled post-harvest. Strawberries are are short shelf life items and will never be as fresh as the day you bought them. Use them as quickly as possible. Do not expect them to last more than three days."
I agree with cakes 22. One time my strawberries my cake was complety ruined with the water from shed from the strawberries....Pls use something else for your filling if possible. Good Luck!
Yeah I would only make it as early as the day before the event. Strawberries dont last in cakes very long. They get wilty and slimy kind of. After its assembled..3 days max before it hits the garbage
Maybe you could order a strawberry sleeve fillings from Country Kitchen!
