HELP! I've been asked to make a 25th Anniversary cake with raspberry filling. I've only ever used butter cream between my layers. Can someone give me some advice and is there a recipe for raspberry filling?
Thanks in advance!

I just made one for a wedding. I put a buttercream dam around the edge, then I used seedless raspberry jam. You can buy those filling sleeves online or at cake decorating stores!! Good luck!

I use jams from the jar...seedless, no added sugar

Another questing about fruit filling!

Do you put a thin layer of butter cream before you put the jam on it? I know that you should make a ridge so that the jam won't seep out, but I'm wasn't sure if you should put a layer of butter cream so that the jam doesn't seep into the cake.

Thanks in advance!!

Have you thought of mixing the buttercream with the raspberry jam and using that as a spread? That would be an alternative to just a layer of raspberry filling. Maybe you can try it by slicing a cupcake and see the difference for look and taste icon_rolleyes.gif
