I need ideas for a strawberry filling, just wanted to know everyone's opinions on their favorite. Its going to be a chocolate cake with one half of it with strawberry filling the other half a custard filling. I'm also not sure what kind of icing to use. Ah I usually do simple things like chocolate with fudge and chocolate buttercream. This is my first cake with different fillings..

Seedless strawberry preserves works! Be sure to pipe a dam of buttercream around the outside. I have also added this to buttercream and then used as a filling. Be sure to get SEEDLESS.

If you can't find seedless nuke the jame in the microwave and run it through a strainer. No fun but works in a pinch.

I do a strawberry cream filling. As mentioned above you can add jam to your regular buttercream but to change up the flavor and texture I use a hi-ratio shortening for my frosting. For my fillings, I use butter, powdered sugar and jam. I think with the custard the straight jam would be a better contrast of flavor and texture but in the future the jams mixed in buttercream make a great very stable filling.

My favorite is a moch cheese cake filling with fresh sliced strawberries! Only downfall from this cake is that it does not last very long due to using fresh cut fruit. I have also made my own strawberry filling by adding strawberries sugar corn starch and water and a splash of lemon in a sauce pan and reducing it. I strain it as meantioned above and let it cool completely. Another twist if your in a hurry you can try the strawberry pie filling... i use this for my banana split cake! HTH!

1stick softened butter
1 1/2 lb of powdered sugar
1/2 to 3/4 cup thawed strawberries

Mix it all together with a hand mixer. Using fresh fruit requires refrigeration but it's quick tasty and you should have all the ingredients in your kitchenicon_smile.gif

I just used this recipe from the recipe section here on CC yesterday for my DH's birthday and it was a big hit! I had strawberry cake and chocolate cake layers with this recipe in between. Delicious! thumbs_up.gif

Strawberries n Cream Mousse
1 large pkg of Instant Vanilla Jello Pudding
1 Pint of Heavy Whipping Cream
2-3 tablespoons of Strawberry Jello Gelatin Powder (you can add more or less depending on how much strawberry taste you want!)
Mix Heavy whipping cream on med-high. Slowly add all of the contents of the Instant Vanilla pudding and strawberry gelatin powder to whipping cream until it reaches a thick mousse and all of the gelatin and pudding mix is dissolved
Then Refridgerate! I use this in cupcakes and cake fillings.

I usually will use frozen strawberries when I make strawberry buttercream. I mash the strawberries and combine with sugar in a saucepan and then cook it down until the sugar is dissolved and it's a thick syrup. I let it cool and then add it to the buttercream instead of milk. I usually add a bit of strawberry extract to up the flavor a bit if I have it. hth
