Does this need refrigerated?

WILL THIS SOAK INTO THE CAKE??? Do you put down a layer of butter cream first or is this solid enough not to soak into the cake? Thanks !

Yes you will have to put remaining in the fridge but it will hold very well without being in the fridge well it is in the cake.. I think it will soak into the cake a little but not sooper wet just like most fillings do.

This was so yummy! It's definitely going to be a favorite filling. :) It soaks into the cake just a little bit, but not too much at all, I didn't put a layer of butterceam and it's just fine. I did store it in the fridge though, but mostly because of the buttercream icing.

Yum, Yum, Yummy. Thank you for sharing. Last week I put in the filling for a WASC and also used in the bc frosting with pink food coloring for my daughters bday party. They all loved it. Tomorrow using it to fill a 4 layer chocolate cake for Fathers day. Can't wait. Once again awesome - thanks.
