I am making a cake for a baby shower this weekend. Mama wants a white cake with strawberry filling and fondant icing. It's a nautical theme for a boy. Can anyone recommend a strawberry filling that isn't pink, doesn't have to be refrigerated, and doesn't use jello. (Mama doesn't like the taste of the jello!). Thanks icon_smile.gif

Strawberry puree added to IMBC, even in a large amount, will only yield a pale, flesh-tone color. It is more neutral than pink. It's pale enough to be tinted, and not so pink as to be feminine if left alone.

The flavor is one of my favorite. I use Dole frozen strawberries with a very small amount of sugar added. I puree it in the processor.

Use a good strawberry sleeve filling. Refrigeration is touchy unless you are sure. You can end up with some fermented fruit pretty quickly.

I filled vanilla cupcakes with strawberry filling. Not sure how it would work with cake, but you can read about it here:
