I completed my first filled cake this weekend. It was French Vanilla cake with Strawberry Crema Filling. Lucky for me, it was just a practice cake. I followed the directions for the filling, but it was really runny. I built an icing damn around the layers, and the filling still oozed over the sides. By the time I iced the cake, I had a big mess around the bottom of my cake. So my icing ended up being streaked with red. To top it all off, when I cut the cake, the filling layers no longer had filling so I had to scoop the filling from the bottom of the cake and spread it on the cake. Needless to say, I don't want to do another filled cake anytime soon!!!!
