Hi everyone im new here and have searched the recipes only to come up empty. At my wedding i had cupcakes that were chocolate with raspberry cakes mixed together well thats what there site describes and they were amazing. However finding a recipe for raspberry cakes that dont actually use raspberries is proving impossible. Unless there is some sort of way to get rid of the seeds short of straining them does anyone have an ideas?. I do have raspberry flavoring but never used it before not sure if it would give me a fake taste or not. This is for my sons second birthday cake next weekend so any help would be appreciated thank you so much love this forum

If the flavoring is fake, it can be detected.

Why are you worried about getting the seeds out? It takes only seconds to do the job. Just process and strain.

I use a fantastic extract from Olive Nation. You won't have time to get it shipped, but the puree is simple. If you want stronger flavor, reduce, but watch it carefully, as it reduces quickly.

Seedless raspberry jam is available in some places. I will tell you that trying to strain the seeded raspberry jam is a task you do not want to bother with. It takes an inordinate amount of time to get a couple of teaspoonsful....I know, I tried. Check on line you can probably order the seedless variety.

I forgot to mention that frozen raspberries work fine for the puree.

In many cake supply shops one can buy seedless raspberry filling in a plastic sleeve.
Another option is the seedless jam mentioned above - found in many grocery stores.
Last option would be to strain puree - made from fzn berries as someone else mentioned.

To get rid of the seeds, just get a pair of brand new tights (pantyhose maybe??), cut off one of the legs, put your puree in it, tie the end and squeeze it. Comes out great.

I'll give this a try. Seedless jam is not available here and I too love the flavor.

Hero makes a raspberry Compound that has no seeds and tastes great. Used like an extract, but thick and syrupy and made from real raspberries.

Straining the raspberries takes only seconds. Shopping takes hours. I'm not sure why you are worried about straining raspberries.

lexy, I was the first person to respond and in that post I explained that it only took seconds. So your subsequent posts about purees have been a little confusing.
