Need Strawberry Filling Recipe PLEASE

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I have spent that last two hours trying to find a strawberry filling recipe that I can use in a WASC cake. I thought I saw one a short time ago in one of the threads about using a jam in it or something like that. Of course I did not cut and paste it into Word cause it was in a topic that was not related and now I can't find it. The recipe does not necessarily have to be one with jam I just want a good flavor and I am open to what ever you have to share with me.

Any suggestions would be welcome - but I don't want one that has to be refrigerated.

Thanks for your help.

What kind of filling specifically are you looking for? I have used sleeved strawberry pastry filling or just plain strawberry jam (warmed to give it a runnier, easier to spread consistency). You can also add the jam to your buttercream icing to make a creamier filling. Or are you looking for something with fresh strawberries in it?

I find the easiest thing to do is grab a can of strawberry pie filling at the grocery store and a container of fresh strawberries.. mix them together and you're done!

I have used the canned strawberry pie filling twice recently, it tastes gross straight out of the can but once it was in the cake it was great.

Yea I think its the consistency or something, it's like gelatinized maybe, it's not very appetizing. That's why I like to add the fresh strawberries in but regardless of look it tastes great in a cake!

I use one that I found on this site and it is delicious. It's easy too, just make enough ahead of time so it can cool before putting on the cake.

I've never tried a link before. Hope this works.

I used this one recently and it was a big hit... delicious and easy to make. It also needs to chill before using. Uses fresh or frozen strawberries.

Thanks to all of you for your help.

I made the WASC this weekend for the first time and it turned out great. Then I made my mistake - I added BC to a jar of strawberry preserves. Used that as my filling and when I cut the cake all of the filling oozed out!!!

I think I would have been ok if I had not added the BC to the preserves. It tasted great but what a disappointment. This was a test cake - so at least it was not one I made for someone.

I think I am going to try the pie filling one next time. Is that all you use - just the can of pie filling - spread it on and you are good to go?

On the ones where you say that it has to be regrigerated first before using - does it stay firm after you once use? Do you have to keep the cake refrigerated?

I heat up a jar of seedless jam and pour in a bowl, then pour in a box if the matching jello and stir. I put back in the frig to set up, so I always try to do my frutiy jams a day ahead. Then just nuke for about a minute to create a thick slow pour. I have added jam to my buttercream, but not a lot...just to give it the color, then I add the appropriate extract to enhance the flavor.

I know this link was for peach filling, but it works for any flavor... See this discussion:

THis also works w/ unflavored gelatin, it's the only way I do fruit filling. It gels enough to create a nice, defined filling & never ends up soaking into the cake & making it soggy.

I used canned filling in my cake the other day, but it seemed too thin. While I was decorating on a tilted stand the top layer started to slide, I think it was because of the thinner consistency. Maybe I will try the jam/jello method next time.

I use Italian buttercream(same ingredients and taste of swiss meringue buttercream but dif method) and I add some seedless strawberry preserves until it looks and tastes like strawberry filling, it tastes fabulous and it is very gourmet tasting...I used to take a small tub of cool whip and mix 1 strawbeery jello package, let it set up in the fridge(it turns into a very good thick filling which is ideal for cakes) and that was well liked too. The latter needs to be refrigerated. Hope this helps...
