I have a request for a cake with strawberry banana filling. I have never had this - is it slices of fruit, or pureed, or some combination? Any suggestions? I'd appreciate it!
I use a vanilla pastry cream or vanilla pudding and then layer fresh sliced strawberries and bananas. I have also had people ask for it on chocolate which then you can layer it on a ganache or chocolate buttercream. If somebody just wants the fruit, I would heat up strawberries preserves and brush that on the cake layer then layer the fresh fruit and brush it lightly with more of the jam. It is by far my most requested filling...maybe it's a Jersey thing
