l've never used a fruit filling sleeve before, but I bought a strawberry filling for a cake next week.
Will I be able to save the leftovers for a while? Also, when you spread it on the cake (I know to use a thick dam around the perimeter!), do you spread a thin layer of buttercream first, or filling directly on the cake?
I never refrigerate my cakes, does this mean I need to now?

TIA
Laurie

This stuff keeps in the refrigerator for just this side of forever. THe sleeve fillings do not need a BC layer to prevent it from soaking into the cake. Sleeve fillings do not soak. Sleeve fillings do not need refrigerated when inside a cake.

Not trying to hijack, but I have a question about filling sleeves. Where do y'all buy them? I don't think I've seen them in the couple of grocery stores I frequent, but I haven't beaten the bushes for them. Just curious...

The only place I have seen them is in the cake supply stores. I haven't seen them in the grocery but I haven't looked either.

Cake supply stores is the only place I know of. HTH

I doubt you'd find them in a grocery store. If you have a cake supply shop (not Michaels, not Hobby Lobby), they should carry some.

if not, here is an on-line source: http://countrykitchensa.com/catalog/SearchResults.aspx (Put "filling" in the search field).

Does this also hold true for the Bavarian Cream sleeves?

Thanks so much, ladies! I've always made my own, but this might be easier, especially if they last forever...I'll have to check it out.
