I am making a dark choco cake and wanted to make a "forest" style with a cherry pie filling in between the cake layers. I was wondering if I needed to do anything to the pie filling or just use it as is...the cake is due tommorrow, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

My suggestion would be to put a dam of buttercream around the edges of your layers to make sure the cherries don't seep out. Sounds delicious. Yummm.....

be careful that you don't put too much filling in and after you put your top layer on, you may want to let your cake sit so that the filling has a chance of settling.

well, i finished the cake and delivered it. i went with the icing dam around the edges and it seemed to be working. so, here's hoping that everything is still where it needs to be when they go to sell it in the bake sale tommorrow morning. icon_lol.gif
