it seems delicious and easy. Do you know how much time will it last in the filled cake at room temperature? I´m looking for a filling for my niece birthday cake but the want it to stay in the table as decor.
I have used this recipe on several cakes and have had great success. Thanks for posting! :)
This is a great and simple recipe. Thanks!!!!
Can this filling be used in a cake I plan to torte, fill, crumb coat and then freeze until closer to the event it is needed for? It sounds delicious.
Does the cake need to be refridgerated with this filling?
I tried this and it made the filling very soupy. Next time i'll just add the sugar but not cook it.
Does this require refrigeration?
I just tried this in a wedding cake and let me tell you I LOVE IT! So did everyone at the wedding. I do not see why this can not be frozen. In or out of a cake. Thank you so much for this recipe.
I tried this recipe for an engagement party and it's great!! Not too thin, just right! Thanks so much!
As others have inquired, does the cake need to be refrigerated after filled? How long can the cake be left at room temp with this filling?
what size cake will this recipe fill? I'm doing a full sheet cake. Thanks
Love this recipe! So simple, so easy, and so delicious!
I tried this filling on yesterday, and it is the best ever!!!
Since it is similar to jam, it would be fine to sit out for a party and while you decorate it. I would refrigerate after decorating and again after a party, but it would be fine to leave out during a party.
I have frozen it and it is fine. I think it was in the freezer for 5-6 months...
I made this as a cake filling for a white cake w/almond flavoring. It was a trial wedding cake for us. It was delicious!!!! It was like eating strawberry shortcake :-) This will definitely be the choice for the base tier's filling. The recipe made enuf to fill a 10inch cake and I used a dam.
This is a great recipe. The only thing I did different was drained the strawberries and then followed the recipe. I also doubled the recipe. The reason I drained the berries I wanted to use the juice in the strawberry cake recipe I made. It was great and I will use this in the wedding cake I'm making in May.
