I am making a cake with BC icing and straberry filling. I made the filling by boiling cornstarch, sugar, lemonjuice, and water then adding the strawberries (the wilton recipe) I don't want to put the BC iced cake in the refrigerator because I have donw that in the past and my BC completely fell off the cake. But I am concerened about not refrigerating the cake bc of the filling. What do I do? The BC recipe I used this time contains butter, will be ok to put in the fridge this time?
You don't need to refrigerate that kind of filling. But if your BC contains butter, it will probably be fine in the fridge so I'm sure either way would be fine.
i fridge anything i make with fruit in it because i believe/worry the fruit can go bad (sleeved fillings are fine unrefridgerated).
i made that wilton filling recipe and used smbc which is pretty much butter, butter, butter and had no problem. i used a fairly good sized dam around the filling. i frirdged and was fine.
I always refrigerate my cakes. I use hi ratio shortening and butter and have never had my frosting slide off. It actually firms things up.
Well I made the cake for my friend and asked her how the filling was bc I didn't refrigerate it and she said it was great.
