AWhat kind of raspberry? I use preserves and they wouldn't leak or run or anything..if you use the sleeved fillings I don't know about those. Preserves will just sit there, but you don't want to put them on too thick anyway.

I make all my fillings. Use a good dam. Never had problems leaking. Have had to freeze whole cake after decorating it . Tasted wonderful day of party.

AThank u both! I would like to fill the cake today Sunday and have the cake for Wednesday. I'm somewhat worried about the taste being affected and how the slices will look when cut. Don't want it to look like its bleeding. The filling is made of fresh raspberries,sugar and whipping cream. So can I fill today?

AJust because of the whipping cream, i would say no. I assume it would be refrigerated, but even then it will probably deflate and the acid in the raspberries aren't going to do it any favors either.

Absolutely not.  The whipping cream will become watery and either soak into the cake or deflate and fall off and the raspberries will become mushy and will deteriorate.  Whipped cream and berries have to be used the day you deliver the cake and kept refrigerated until serving.  Extra delicate.

Thanks you again... But that leaves a lot of decorating at the last minute:( So I guess I will have to fill Tuesday..... or what about today?

If you want to fill in advance then you need to choose a different raspberry filling.  Either preserves or the sleeve.

Yes, sometimes fillings will dictate what you have to do. In this case you'll have to do it last-minute if you want to use that combination of filling.
