I need a recipe for a strawberry filling. I'd like it thick and creamy, maybe a mousse? Simple would be great It's for an outdoor party and I would like the cake to sit out for a little while before we cut it. Thanks!
I whip up Pastry Pride, then use a potato masher to crush some strawberries so there are chunks & juice, mix them together & you have a nice thick strawberry mousse. It would be ok to sit for a couple hours. I have also added strawberry syrup (Torani or Hershey's) for an extra strawberry flavor. Very good, tastes like strawberry ice cream.
I sometimes just add high quality strawberry jam to my buttercream icing and use as filling, but the Pastry Pride with fresh strawberries sounds awesome. Sounds fantastic!
I added some of my homemade strawberry freezer jam to some indydebi's buttercream and it was delicious. Even better than I thought it would be. My sister in law asked me to make her a cake and use that filling as the frosting over the whole cake.
Where do you buy Pastry Pride?
Can you sugar the strwberry or is that too much juice? Too sweet?
I had mine out for less than an hour so i don't know if it will be good in the heat but i whip up some whipping cream along with powder sugar...1 tablespoon; if strawberry are too tart then you add more powder sugar.. then just fold in the strawberry that i cut... my family loves it....for the cake, i did the chocolate version of WASC
