I'm usually just a reader around here googling the life out of whatever issue I'm having with my cakes, but now I need to consult the cake gods since google can't even answer my questions. (Congratulations, you are the cake gods! lol) So I'm making a strawberry shortcake cake, which I've never done before. Any strawberry filled cake I've ever made was done with buttercream. So what I'm wondering is since I need to frost the bottom layer before putting the filling on, will a fresh strawberry filling drench whipped cream frosting and liquify it completely destroying my cake? I know my buttercream holds up to the fresh juicy strawberry slices and 'slime' but will a whipped cream frosting? And while we're at it can you throw me a bone on your favorite whipped cream frosting recipes that will maybe hold up better and not make me worry so much about gooey strawberry filling touching it? Thanks a bunch ahead of time for all your insight (and all the good reads over the last year).
