Anyone have a good strawberry filling recipe that I can freeze? It is for a wedding cake.
Thanks.

Strawberries don't thaw very well. Pretty much any filling you use will leach a LOT of water when it thaws. I wouldn't do anything with fresh strawberries for the freezer. Maybe a ribbon of strawberry jam that has already been cooked.

I use jams all the time for filling. If I need to freeze the cake, I first put a thin layer of buttercream, then a thin layer of the jam. Sometimes I mix a little jam into buttercream for the filling--pretty and yummy.

I use a traditional buttercream
1 stick butter
2 lbs of powdered sugar
1 10oz jar of jam

I heat the jam in the microwave until it's smooth and then I mix the butter and sugar together. I may not use the entire bag of PS but I use a good amount. Then I add in the jam to taste and sugar to thickness.

I made this recipe with fresh strawberries for years but it weeps at room temp. The jam makes a very stable filling and with the butter it should freeze with no problem.

I have used it for icing as well.
