Strawberry Cake Filling (from
Makes 2-3 cups of filling
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 TBSP cornstarch
  • 2½ cups frozen strawberries, cut into small pieces
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  1. In a large saucepan, whisk together the water and cornstarch. Add the strawberries and sugar to the water.
  2. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick and transparent.
  3. Allow to cool to room temperature before spreading onto cake.
Just a tip for filling cakes: make a wall of buttercream frosting along the edges of the cake by piping frosting using a fairly large tip. Then spoon the filling inside the walls. This way, the filling will not leak out the sides.
