As a cake decorating instructor I am constantly getting questions about recipes. So, I decided it would be a good idea to start sharing some of my favorite here on my blog. If any of you have taken my classes you know that I have no secrets when it comes to cake decorating. I love sharing ideas with my students, because in return I am alway learning stuff from them and hearing some of their ideas.

I constantly have questions on what a good filling is for a cake. So, today I thought I would share my
Homemade Raspberry Filling recipe. I love using this filling with many different types of cakes...almond poppyseed cake, lemon cake, chocolate cake, and the list goes on. You are able to find some pre-made fillings in cake supply stores, but the taste is nothing compared to a homemade filling.

Raspberry Filling
1 package (10-12oz.) frozen raspberries packed in sugar, thawed
1/3 c. sugar
3 T. cornstarch
1 tsp. lemon juice

Drain raspberries, reserving the liquid (I like to drain mine over a class measuring cup). Add enough water to liquid to equal 1 1/4 c. In large saucepan, combine liquid, sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice; mix well. Heat and stir over meduim heat until the mixture boils and thickens. Cool completely. Stir raspberries into cooled mixture.

If you have any questions on the recipe please leave a comment. Also, if there is a recipe you would like me to post in the coming weeks let me know. I LOVE hearing from people.
