Strawberry filling question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm making a wasc for a Saturday party for my aunt. I want to put strawberry filling between the layers. I need a good recipe. I've found a few on here and the net but can't decide. And i need to know how far in advance I can make the filling and how to store it. Tia

How would Betty crockers canned cherry frosting taste?
post #3 of 7

Yuck. I wouldn't use a canned cherry frosting…I hate cherries anyway…yeah I'm weird like that. 

 

For an easy strawberry filling, I usually use Seedless All Fruit jam. Heat up the jar (don't burn yourself), add a package of strawberry jell-o. Let sit until jelled. It stays smooth. Doesn't taste nasty because of the addition of the jello. 

 

You can make it days ahead, store in the fridge and just take out and let it come up to room temp if it's not spreadable…it should be though!

Yea I kinda figured the cherry wouldn't taste that great but I like cherry sometimes and thought about getting that frosting for a minute.
I bought frozen strawberries tho so no I'm going to find a recipe using that. I also kinda wondered what vanilla pudding would taste like but I'm sure that wouldn't work well for a layered cake.

Haha!! I'm sure those who like cherry would like the frosting. Count me out! Definitely a cherry hater! The smell nauseates me. LOL!

 

You can do frozen strawberries, but you have to thaw them first and probably would want to drain them in a sieve for a little while. I would honestly cook them over a low heat so the juices come out. Then you could puree them and add them to something like Swiss meringue buttercream. Adding pureed strawberries or any fruit to a regular American buttercream will thin it out. 

 

You definitely can use vanilla pudding, but you need to make it thicker. Add less milk if using an instant pudding, but cook and serve would taste a lot better. I would add less milk to it as well. It will be more of a custard. 

 

Now if you want to get really professional, get a pastry cream recipe. It's like a vanilla pudding, but thicker and WAAAY better! Very easy to make!

Sure! I want to say I found it on here like 5 or 6 years ago! I am definitely not the maker-upper! ha!
