I have to do a full size sheet cake 16*26*4 I am not sure what filling to put in it I am useing the Butter Cream (with real butter for decorators) found here on this site I am still new to decorating and never have done a middle filling before this cake is for the army ball..comeing up what filling would you use and how is it made?..
oh i forgot I am useing a butter cake or maybe white have not decided
I like the raspberry filling you can buy in the sleeve. It's very good with yellow cake and white icing. I'm using it for a cake this weekend. You can getthe filling ready-made at cake supply stores.
Or you could use seedless raspberry or strawberry jam and mix it with some buttercream, that is really good too.
How about a mango or banana curd or a mousse such as raspberry or pineapple. You could also do another buttercream in the inside layer such as cappuccino buttercream or a liquor such as Creme de Cacao buttercream? Oh gosh, I could on.... I love fillings, lol.
I love the curds (lemon, strawberry, orange) that you buy in the grocery stores next to the jelly/jams...you can use it right out the jar but be sure to pipe a dam of icing around each layer, or you can mix some with your buttercream nd I would also be sure to pipe a dam of icing around it. You can use seedless jams as well or find some wonderful filling recipes on www.ladycakes.com. Have fun, I am sure they will love it. anything homemade is better than store bought in my book. Pat
When I fill sheet cakes I generally get the sleeve fillings, then combine them with buttercream. That gives a little more stability with the cutting and it also prevents leaks. Plus - a lot of people I've talked to don't like those sleeve fillings full-strength, so the buttercream cuts the overpowering flavor too.
I am with the others.....curds are great, so are the seedless jams- Raspberry is my FAV! I have also used Cream Cheese filling-yum- and also chrushed chocolate chip cookies or oreo cookies mixed with the buttercream. No matter what filling you decide, just remember to pipe a dam around the outside, so the filling does not seep out.......forgot to add, chocolate ganache makes a great filling too
I think I'd go with adding fruit filling to buttercream. This always gets rave reviews when I've done it.
does the cake with a fruit jam mixed with buttercream need to be refridgerated???????????
