Re: I'm confused about the strawberry filling...

@vabreeze 

 

The cake is for Game Night - my tea party luncheon is August 1st - that's when I'm going to tackle the tiramisu.  If you want strawberry cake, you need to be here at 7 pm tomorrow.

Re: I'm confused about the strawberry filling...

i wouldnt use fresh strawberries unless it is going to be eaten right away.  

 

 

this works nicely.

1 cup plus 1/4 cup water mixed with 3 tablespoon cornstarch

add to sauce pan with 3/4 cup sugar., teas lemon juice.   Cook on med heat until mixture is mixed a bit, add  3 cup mashed strawberry and cook slowly until thickened

 

this will make a thickened fresh tasting strawberry filling.  You can add sliced strawberrys  to this mixture.  Cool totally before spreading.i

@house_cat  I live in Western NY and grew up with strawberry shortcake my Mom made and it was always strawberries on homemade biscuits, and boy could she make one delish biscuit.

Live the thick layer of strawberry goodness between layers and the strawberry flower decoration on top is perfect!
