The Best Way to Fill a Cake with Raspberry Filling

Raspberry Filling Tip #1: Use freeze-dried raspberries

Freeze-dried raspberries are the way to go when making raspberry filling. Using freeze-dried raspberries (as opposed to fresh or frozen) will help create a thick, Greek yogurt-like texture which is what you want for your raspberry filling. The freeze-dried raspberries, when pulverized, absorb some of the moisture from the cream, giving you that thickness. Using fresh or frozen raspberries will not give you that same texture and it will be a lot harder to work with!

Raspberry Filling Tip #2: Use a food processor to blend the raspberries

Raspberry cream is best made in a food processor, however, you can pull it off in a blender if needed. You start out by pulsing your freeze-dried raspberries until it resembles a powder, Next, you add the sugar and the cream. Check out this raspberry cream cupcake recipe for the full instructions on how to use the food processor to make your raspberry cream filling. 

Raspberry Filling Tip #3: Use high-fat heavy whipping cream

I recommend using high-fat heavy whipping cream for your raspberry filling. I like to use 40% Darigold. The fat will help keep the raspberry filling thick and retain enough moisture so it’s easier to work with for spreading and even piping. Also, make sure your whipping cream is cold when you add it to your filling. Both of these factors will play a huge role in giving you the best raspberry cream filling for your cake!
