I'm curious to know if anyone has ever tried using those "dried strawberries" in a filling? I am a little concerned that using fresh they will "ooze" as berries usually do and make the cake mushy. I made some icing and used fresh strawberries with it for a filling and this is what I found happened. Any thoughts on it?
Thanks for any insight you can offer.

They don't have much texture, and will absorb every little bit of moisture to reconstitute themselves, then be beyond mushy.

Cooked berries provide a better filling, or cut berries for a short time.
