Strawberry Sleeve Filling

I was looking for a version of the strawberry sleeve filling that most bakeries use in cakes....but just homemade so I wouldn't have to order online or drive 2.5 hours to get. A customer asked that I give her that filling with fresh strawberries mixed in. This is what I came up with. It is a gel type filling. It is optional whether you want the fresh strawberries.... its fine without. I made a layer of buttercream and then this filling. Got rave reviews from this customer. Can be doubled and tripled etc. ... or it can be used as a topping for strawberry shortcake... or to dip apples into (as my kids loved with the left overs). Enjoy :)
