I have a cake I need to make ahead of time ( 1 week ) due to my daughter having surgery. Its chocolate cake with rasberry filling. Can I freeze this cake with the filling? Also any good EASY rasberry filling recipes would be great too. Thanks!

I wouldn't freeze with the filling. Are you freezing it frosted too?? It takes so little time to fill, I'd wait if you can.
Here's the filling I make:

1- 10oz bag of frozen raspberries
1/2 cup current jelly
1 Tablespoon cornstarch

Thaw the raspberries in the bag and once thawed crush with your hand while still in the bag.
Place the crushed berries in a sauce pan with the jelly and cornstarch. Cook, stirring constantly until bubbling. Cook 1 more minute; cool and use. You can make this filling ahead of time and refrigerate if you like.

Hope this helps.

I freeze my cakes with a raspberry mouse filling all the time. I am sorry but I can't remember my filling off the top of my head.

I am doing as much prep work as I possibly can. Its for a Wedding on Sat and my daughter is having her tonisls out Thurs. I wanted them baked, filled, and Frosted so Friday all I would have to do is cover them with Fondant and do a little decorating all while caring for her. Sigh I wish i could pay someone to do it for me this go around.

I have never frozen this filling before but it is the best!
2 1/2 c raspberries (frozen or fresh)
1/2 c sugar
2 1/2 Tbs cornstarch

Put all ing in a saucepan and let come to a boil (while stirring) boil for 2 minutes or until thickened and mixture is not cloudy. Take off heat and cool. It's so yummy and works with all sorts of fruits!

I have. I make a good stiff buttercream dam. Be careful not to fill any higher than your dam. Let your cake settle a little to check for possible leaks. I have even gone ahead and frosted and then wrapped in plastic wrap, followed by foil and then a plastic box and then placed it in my freezer. I thaw it slowly in my fridge. I know somebody will come along and say I'm crazy but I've never had a problem.
