Honestly, I haven't tried it. I have some, and should do a test run. It may work just fine .....I was just hoping somebody has done it before (: Thanks!!!

AI used pureed raspberries with 1/4 cup caster sugar, 2tbs corn flour and 1/4 cup of water. Mix water and Cornelius together until smooth. Place berries, sugar and cornflour mix in saucepan and bring to the boil whilst stirring until it becomes thick. This makes a thick easy to pipe delicious jam like filling. I love it

ATry using a strawberry berry compote, even better a triple berry compote would be thicker and delicious, when I make mine its thick enough to hold on top of a cupcake. HTH

Boil your favorite jam for five minutes.  It should thicken up nicely enough to spread like that.
