Hey, I made this great strawberry filling but when I tried to ice the cake that it was in, it oozed out! I even put a second layer of bc around the edges but it still runs! Any advice?? I'd REALLY like to use this filling! Thanks!

did you put a dam of buttercream between layers before spreading the filling? That prevents the filling from oozing out.

How much filling did you use?

Here's a sleeved pastry filling usage chart by cake sizes:
(So you can compare how much they recommend and you actually used.)

MAYBE 1/3 cup for a 6 inch, is that too much?
