I was just wondering if the strawberry sleeve filling that you buy at the cake store is the same thing as the strawberry glaze tht you see at the grocery store for shortcakes? [/list]

They're probably made from the same ingredients, but the stuff in the sleeve is thicker, to be used as a filling. The grocery store stuff is thinner, to be used as a glaze or drizzle on shortcakes.

Where do you buy the strawberry sleeve?

If you don't have an independent cake supply store near you, you can order it online. Global Sugar Art carries it.

FYI - if you go through the ad on CC, the forum will get a percentage of your purchase, with the proceeds going toward the cost of running the site.

There are two strawberry sleeves - one is the glaze, one is thicker with pureed strawberry in it. I accidentally ordered the wrong one once. icon_sad.gif
