Fillings

Fillings for Cakes

  • When making your own fillings from scratch, make sure it will be stable to sit for a long period of time and will not be too thin for a filling in a cake. Homemade fillings have no preservatives and spoil much quicker
  •  I recommend using a non-­dairy product to make a little firmer cake safe mousse.
  • There are several types of cake fillings you can use without worrying about them spoilage such as jams, preserves, canned pie fillings and specialty cake fillings can be found at a bakery supply stores.
