Since you are all so amazingly smart, I thought I'd ask yet another question. I am making a cake for Saturday. I will fill and ice it on Friday evening. My question is about the filling. I am using a strawberry filling (strawberries, cornstarch and sugar). Will this cake need to be refrigerated because of the filling? Is there a post that has "filling rules"? I think it probably will be fine NOT refrigerated but let me know what you think.
Are you cooking the filling?

mamawrobin--Yes, I cook the filling and let it cool.
