Raspberries and Cream Cake Filling

1. Alternate layers of cake topped with vanilla buttercream frosting topped with a blanket of whole raspberries (either fresh or frozen) using this layer cake filling method. Avoid placing the raspberries around the edges of the pan so that red juice does not bleed into the cake’s finish.

2. Press down on the raspberries so that they sink partway down into the filling.

3. Cover with another layer of cake and repeat.

4. Wrap the filled cake within its pan entirely in plastic wrap.

5. Freeze or chill the cakes until cold. Follow this link to read more about my cake freezing method.

  1. Hi Kristen! I’ve been meaning to try your cake freezing method. Have you ever done this with layers of fresh strawberries or is that not a good idea because strawberries get pretty soft when they thaw out? I’m wondering because my most popular cake flavor is vanilla with vanilla IMBC and fresh strawberries, but I would love to streamline my process and get into freezing everything so that it’s ready to go!
