when cools. The filling flavours can be of your choice, such as vanilla,
chocolate, lemon, butterscotch and more. The custard filling can last till
three days but is best when used on same day of preparation. Make sure custard
filling should not frozen before use.
Fruit fillings in the cake provide extra flavour and texture to them. There are many fruits which can be baked into a filling like strawberries, raspberries, peaches, blueberries and apricots. When using fruit fillings, a piping of frosting is applied in order to act as a dam to hold the filling. Fresh fruits can be added but this type of cake should be eaten within a few hours of preparation, as fruits continue to ripen, even after the refrigeration and juice will began to soak into the cake. Fruits filling that does not contain eggs can last up to two days at room temperature.
Frosting is sweet, often made of sugar with milk and often enriched with ingredients such as butter, egg-whites, whipped cream, buttercream and cream cheese. It’s basically used to decorate the cake. At times, the same frosting is used to ice the cake which add more flavour and moisture. Cakes with this type of fillings can be stored for days, depending upon the type of frosting fillings.
