Have anyone ever used smuckers spreadable fruit as a filling in a cake. I'm doing a white cake and wanted to know have others tried it. Would I have to mix it with something to make it a bit thicker or just spread right out of the jar. Could I do it with any jelly?
I've used Polaner All Fruit before, and I just spread it right out of the jar. It was fabulous.
The spreadable fruit is the only kind of fruit filling that I have used. It works great! I don't mix it with anything. I haven't heard really of anyone using just jelly.
i use the perserves right out of the jar!! sometimes i mix it with a little buttercream
I used Smuckers seedless raspberry preserves in the middle of a box mix white cake and it was good. It did seem to soak into the cake a tiny bit, but it was still yummy.
I use smukers preserves all the time. I just stir the jar contents and spread over the cake layer with a spatula.
I use the Smuckers spreadable fruit often. It's dee-lish. Some of the flavors might "bleed" color into the cake (especially if you're putting the fruit on a white cake), but you can just spread a thin layer of buttercream on the cake surfaces (remember to coat the layer being placed *on* the fruit too). You can also mix the fruit into buttercream icing. That will also help keep the colors from bleeding. Either way, the spreadable fruit is yummy!
You can use any spreadable fruit jams or preserves. REMEMBER you still need to use a dam or your cake sides will have the jam leaking out onto them.
Good luck, it's fun & easy!!
