AHi can someone please help me. I'm making a strawberry cake filling, and it wasn't thickening so I added corn starch but i added too much and i don't like the taste of it, can someone please tell me how to fix it. Do I keep adding more strawberries? If so won't that just make it liquid as I don't want it to seep thru the cake. Please help.
Adepending on how much cornstarch you have in there -- what about if you cooked down a second batch -- whole or partial batch and instead of adding cornstarch, just add your first batch and cook it all up --
full disclosure -- I can't remember ever doing this myself but it's a definite maybe to possibly fix your issue --
best to you
Ahonestly, if this was for a paying customer, I'd re-do the whole thing
ALast case fix, before throwing it out: Over cooking cornstarch will thin it out. Worth a try.
AIts just a cake I'm baking for my daughter. I'll probably buy some more strawberries and redo it I was just hoping there was a way to fix it.
Ahow much cs did you use into what quantity of berries, and what are the other ingredients in there?
Ai mean you could add some applesauce or some beet juice that would help thin it -- do you have lemon juice in there -- that will help with the flavor-- agave, honey, even more sugar will loosen it up too
Abut you still need to melt down the thick batch and maybe bring it to a boil to incorporate the new ingredient and IT MIGHT work :)
