AHi! A costumer of mine wants a raspberry jam or preserve for the filling. Is there a recipe for that or do you use the jam straight off the shelf of a grocery store? Never did a fruit before!
AOh, and seedless too!
I would use Smucker's. They make a good seedless one. Read the label though because they also make one WITH seeds! You can fold the jam into some of your buttercream for the filling too.
I was using the tubs of stuff from my cake store...until I realized it's just jam. I use smuckers too
It is very easy to make fro scratch and then put thru seive.And so delicious!!!!
What is the cost compared to Smuckers? Can you freeze it? I just got a chest freezer so I am trying to make things in bulk now.
AThank you! It's just for a little 8 in birthday cake so I think I'll buy the smuckers and fold it into my buttercream! That sounds easy and yummy!
SMUCKERS SEEDLESS straight off the grocery store shelf.
excellent either alone or with a little buttercream. delicious.
and try the apricot in layers of white cake, with white buttercream. yummy. I know it sounds weird, try it someday.
How do you get rid of the seeds if you use frozen?
I only buy the seedless s'berry & r'berry jam. They only come in one size. I nuke it for about 30 seconds to get it out of the jar...add a box of the powder raspberry or strawberry jello, stir real good and put in frig over night. It looks grainy/gritty..but doesn't taste that way. I have both of these recipes in the recipe section on cc.
Try this. It is all I use. It is wonderful. It tastes much better and fresher than raspberry jam, and is a prettier brighter color. It freezes beautifully too, if you have leftovers
To ddaigle,why do you add the jello powder to the jam? Does it stop it from sliding from between the layers or just for the added flavor?
ttaunt...I don't really know why! LOL....i was given that recipe a long time ago. It does not stop it from sliding or seeping. I think it enhances the flavor...gives it more punch.
I used my Smuckers today....YUM. I also found some raspberry chocolate chips at my cake store and put them in a chocolate WASC.
Raspberry chocolate chips?????????? Woah! Never heard of it. Sounds amazing!
Me either...Must not have been a big seller because they were on clearance. They are amazing in chocolate cake.
What did you try from Smuckers, was it Jam or preserves. I cant seem to find seedless preserves
I think at Christmas time I saw cherry chocolate chips. I wish I would've bought some to try. Maybe they will be back in December.
Thanks,I will try it soon.
Do you think you can make a ganache from hersheys kissis?
ASure you can. I've bought milk chocolate chips instead of the semi sweet you just have to figure out h you just have to figure out how many kisses it takes to make a batch.
love kisses,will have to try that too
When I read your question I had to look in the fridge at mine. It's the yellow banner on the front "SEEDLESS" that I buy, and you're right it says Jam. Perhaps BatterUpCake found something different in her store.
No, I said Jam.
AThe cake boss recipe, have you tried it without the liqueur, I need the for a child's burthday party and can't do that!! Lol!
How much buttercream would you add to the jam to fill a cake. Would you mix it half and half?
Sorry I see that doesn't read right. What I mean is 1 part jam to 2 parts buttercream
