I am looking for a nice, but not too complicated (and cheap would be nice as I am doing this cake for super cheap for a friend) raspberry cake filling that would go well with white cake. Thanks so much!!
Wilton has one that I swear by. 1 Frozen bag of raspberries, 8 oz of whipping cream and 2 tbls of cornstartch. I also add 1/8 cup of sugar to sweeten it up more. Mix on medium heat for about 8 minutes until thick and then let cool. It's absolutly delicious and only costs about $3 to $4 to make!
One of my favorite things is watching the smile of a person who was just presented with a cake that was baked with love!
A few months ago I got an order for 2 cakes with a raspberry filling. Well I had never made a raspberry filling before so I went to the recipes section here on cake central and found a couple of recipes. I went ahead and chose to try the raspberry filling submitted by Merissa (original recipe) since it seemed quite simple and easy to do and it turned out great. The customer just loved it. The only thing that I would advise is to make sure when bringing the mixture back to a boil and simmer you don't over cook it. My first batch came out really thick and was a little difficult to spread on the cake because I left it simmering a little to long. But my second batch came out delicious and easily spreadable. Hope that helps.
Honestly I prefer Henry and Henry raspberry filling. I don't care so much for their others, but this raspberry filling is not too sweet like preserves can be and it works well with cake and icing.. I was surprised when I tasted it on its own...not that great. But pair it with the cake and sweet icing and it's perfect! It's the filling we used at the bakery I worked for and it's the most requested filling I get. It's not that expensive either to get a long sleeve of the stuff. Lasts a long time too.
