Sleeve fillings are fillings that you can buy at the cake decorating shop that don't have to be refrigerated. They come in a plastic bag shaped like a big piping bag and you snip off the corner to use them.

Hi babydeer115. icon_smile.gif

The full description of "sleeved fillings" is sleeved pastry fillings which indicates another of their primary uses, but they're great for use as cake fillings and some members use them to flavor their buttercreams.

Most cake decorating supply stores will carry at least some sleeved fillings, but generally the greatest variety is available online and can be purchased in bulk or by the individual sleeve.

Here's a super thread that has online sources for sleeved pastry fillings and so much more - in fact, it's titled everything you need to know to make, decorate and assemble tiered/stacked/layer cakes:

It's a long read so I'd recommend a cup/glass of your favorite beverage and a comfy chair.

P.S. Don't be such a stranger. icon_lol.gif

You're most welcome. icon_biggrin.gif

Are you going to be making your own birthday cake?

The WASC cake (recipe in the link posted above) is good with just about any flavor of sleeved pastry filling. And there aare also several CC member recommended buttercream frostings that would be complementary.

And just so I don't miss it, let me wish you an early

nope, no birthday. I like to read everything I can to keep learning and I saw something about sleeve fillings, I just didn't know what they were and when I did a search for them on the net I couldn't find anything..
