I am making 5 half sheet cakes and 4 6" cakes for a friends daughters communion. They are all being covered in buttercream but they are being filled with a strawberry filling. She needs the cakes Friday morning for Saturday but i want to do as much as possible beforehand. How far in advance do you think i can make the filling?

I think you can certainly  make the filling a few days in advance, but It has to be refridgerated.

I have been making Raspberry Puree Filling by melysa, on this site for years.  I substitute frozen strawberries all the time.  It will last quite a while, in the refrigerator, but I also freeze it.  When it is thawed, I zap it in the microwave 20 seconds at a time and stir in between.  Although, it separates just a bit in the thawing process, it comes back together after microwaving.  Absolutely yummy!


No problem with it sitting out after filling your cake.  I fill my cakes the day before decorating and there are no health issues with fruit and sugar.
