I have a wedding cake that the bride wants a cheescake filling topped with cherries. I normally make a cheescake filling then put pureed raspberries over the cheescake filling but the bride doesnt like the seeds that are in the raspberries. She wants the cheesecake filling with cherries but I have never done this before. Should I be safe and just buy the premade cherry filling or do something else...please help!!!

I have used the cherry sleeve filling several times and was very pleased with the results.

I'm interested to know what you do for your cheesecake filling. I too would go w/ the sleeve filling. It's shelf stable, doesn't soak into the cake & works out to be about the same price as canned filling even after shipping

I would use the cream cheese sleeve filling too. For a strawberry cream cheese filling I just mixed the two together first. That wouldn't work if the bride wants a layer of each for the filling . Then I would just do a separate layer of each but make sure the dam is high enough.

OK, I'm a cherry filling NUT and I cannot resist the canned cherry pie filling. I know, I know - it's CANNED - but it's SO delicious. I used it in a black forest cake I did for a customer and they absolutely loved it.

Just make a cherry filling. Cook down some cherries, sugar, add some bloomed gelatin, and bring to a boil. You could add some kirsch to make it really good.
You could also strain out the seeds from the raspberries.

Oh, I love the google doc. I just didn't know if maybe you used something non-perishable
