This strawberries & cream cake filling recipe is simple, easy, and appealing to a large percentage of people. It may look plain but don’t let that fool you – it is my top seller for wedding cakes, probably because it is so fresh yet familiar-tasting. It includes fresh homemade strawberry puree with specific instructions on what kind of berries to use.
This recipe for lemon cake filling uses homemade lemon curd that must be made in advance and allowed to cool (lemon curd freezes well therefore can be made in bulk). The trick to making lemon curd is to cook it in a stainless steel bowl that’s set up as a double boiler over a sauce pan.
