Eas Strawberry Filling

This also works with raspberry jam/jello for a raspberry filling.


  • 1 small jar SEEDLESS strawberry jam
  • 1 small box strawberry jello


  1. Pour the powdered jello in a bowl.
    Nuke the Jam for one minue.
    Pour jam into bowl with jello.
    Stir until dissolved.
    Refrigerate overnight if possible.

Note: If you find it is too firm to spread, nuke for a few seconds. Always pipe a buttercream dam and do not fill filling above dam. This filling will soak into cake, so I recommend spreading a light layer of buttercream down first.

thecakediva40...absolutely. I make it 24 hours in advance so the jello and jam can set back up. I pipe a dam and spread a thin layer of buttercream because it will seep into the cake. Some call that "moist"...I call it soggy.


Excellent and tasty filling, but you definitely need the frosting dam, and a strong tall one too! I tripled the recipe for a 12-9-6 and even had some leftover. I will try this same formula with other jello mixes :)


ginny...my walmart only has one size and brand of SEEDLESS jam. The jar I get is a "normal" small one. It won't hurt if it isn't the same exact size. This is a very user-friendly recipe. Use what you can find. lv2kayak..I don't worry about the cake being refrigerated. I've had berry filled cakes at weddings that I know sat out for HOURS. I've left a jar of jam out on the counter for hours also.


I made this and used it in a cake with some strawberry buttercream and they LOVED it. Thanks so much for posting this. They are all asking for more!!!!!


I made this as well and I see what you mean by a strong frosting dam. Looked like my cake was bleeding. lol My family loved it and asked me to make another one right away. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
