how do i get a fruit filling that doesn't soak into cake...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

hey all,

 

how do I make a fruit filling for a cake that doesn't soak into the cake? I've heard cooked fillings made with cornstarch will still soak in, which is how I have done it in the past....I want a good fruit filling that will stay put, kind of like a soft gel...if that makes sense....  whats the best additive to the fruit and sugar for avoiding soaking into the cake?

 

thanks!

Smear a very thin layer of butter cream down before you put the fruit filling.   It will still soak into the top layer...but not both top AND bottom.
