I have a Bride who wants a strawbwerry "jam type" filling.

Other than slapping jam between the layers I was wondering how the packaged fillings are.

I've had some that have had a nasty aftertaste.

Anyone use one that they love??

I use (and love!) the CK packaged fillings! The only one so far that I didn't care for was the coconut cream, but the rest are delicious!

The Strawberry Cake Filling recipe from this site might work in this case. It's jam-like in that the main ingredients are strawberries and sugar. It's very good!

Can either of you tell me what supplier you use to buy the CK fillings?

I usually sue Sugarcraft. The only one they have listed is made by Henry and Henry.

Holly..I looked at that recipe and thought I read a comment that it was thin.

You do have to cook it for quite a while to thicken it (the directions are vague--I think I usually cook it for about 15 minutes), but you can also just add less water than it calls for, or a little more cornstarch.

I think you can buy those CK fillings at www.countrykitchensa.com

...the one that CK Products sells is made by Henry & Henry. I have an account with CK so I buy it direct.

Does anyone have a tried and true recipe that they use? I would like to make one that does not have the consistency of a jam.

How do I know if my packaged filling has gone Bad?  I have Raspberry Fruit, and Either Bavarian or Pastry cream. To be honest, they are probably three years old, have been kept in Cool, Dark place, and Look perfectly fine through the Clear Vacuum packaging.  Please help me!  :)
