I need to make a chocolate cake with a raspberry filling, and covering the cake with fondant.
So I found this recipe online:
3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup fresh raspberries
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
I was wondering if the little seeds are a big deal and if I am going to see them under the fondant! (I am going to use the same buttercream for filling and coating)
I'd recommend that you not ice the cake in that particular raspberry filling. I think it would be great between layers but maybe you should try a ganache or a basic buttercream to ice the outside of your cake and then cover it with fondant.
Also, you'll want to make sure you use a crusting buttercream, which I don't believe this recipe does.
I used Raspberry filling with seeds once and I had some negative feedback. I use raspberry jam. But I would not use that directly under my fondant because it will be lumpy.
yes im making a ganache to ice my cake.. i just made this buttercream but i dont really know if it's good, I HATE RASPBERRIES! i tryed the buttercream but it seems very sweeth.. I dont know if it's supposed to taste like that cuz i dont eat raspberries :/
