I was wondering if anyone has ever used blackberry or strawberry jelly for a filling? If so, would you just mix it with your buttercream frosting?
Thanks for any info in advance.
I have used strawberry and raspberry preserves for filling between layers. I didn't mix with buttercream.
I have used jellies mixed with jello in some of my fillings. The jello thickens the jelly or perserves up.
I like to use strawberry, blackberry, raspberry, and apricot jelly as a filling. Choose a high quality brand with chunks of real fruit. I make my own because I live in Oregon where berries are very abundant and nothing beats homemade.
I use an awad-winning gourmet line. I use a very thin layer and it is perfect. It is also great in FBC/IMBC.
