Hey my fellow Cakers. I have a question about fruit filling. I am making a 3 tier lemon cake with raspberry filling in January. It if for a wedding. I wanted to know if you pipe a dam fill with BC and then filling or do you just pipe a dam and fill with filling? Let me know.

I would definitely use buttercream as a dam, then fill with filling, just works so much easiericon_smile.gif

Pipe the dam with BC then place your filling inside the dam, careful you don't let the filling get higher than the dam, keep it a little lower.

also.. make sure the dam is from stiff b/c... add more powder sugar to b/c.. until you can make a ball from it.. put in piping bag with only coupler.. or you can roll the b/c into a log.. and then place around the tier.. the add the filling.. but not up to edge of dam.. little below it.. then let cake settle over nite or for several hours.. some people place a piece of tile.. same size as tier.. for several hours to help it to settle.. this will help it not to bulge(sp).. hth
