Makes about 5 cups filling

1 package frozen raspberries (about 10.5 oz)
1 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream
2.5 teaspoons powdered, unflavored gelatin
4 oz. water

Place frozen raspberries, sugar and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Allow the liquid to cook down and thicken up a bit.
(If you don't want raspberry pieces in your filling, you can strain it at this point).

Place 1/4 cup puree and gelatin in a heatproof measuring cup and let it sit over a pan of simmering water for 5 minutes, stirring until the gelatin is dissolved.

Remove gelatin mixture from heat and stir in with the rest of the puree. Allow the puree to come down to room temperature.

Beat the heavy cream in a mixer bowl until it forms soft peaks. Add the puree mixture and beat until soft peaks form.

You can fill your cakes at this point or chill the mixture. It will chill up pretty firm, like a mousse.

This recipe is really good with chocolate cake.

Can strawberries be substituted for the raspberries in this filling recipe? Thank you!
Definitely!
Can I make this raspberry filling and be able to spread it on the cake a day later/do I have to do it the same day/
It tends to stiffen up to mousse consistency from the gelatin, so it's a little harder to spread if you let it completely set up, but not impossible.

Yes... this is very much a perishable recipe.

Does this filling once on the cake have to stay in the frig?
Theresa.... very nice recipe, Thanks
Thanks I have to try this out because raspberry is my favorite...
I have my first request for raspberry filling; it will be on a 3-tier grooms cake, they are picking it up on a Thursday and eating it on a Friday - so they would have to keep this in a refridgerator? Looking for a raspberry filling where they dont have to do this - not many people have room for a 3-tier cake in their fridge. :)
Patty - I would say you'd need to keep it refrigerated with this filling because it is heavy cream-based.

Theresa I just read  the post from Eileen... 

I need a filling for a chocolate wedding cake.. something that I do not have to keep refridge..!!

I am making a two tier cake. 10" round and 6" round. The 10" will only have two layers and the 6" will have three. How many times the recipe do you suggest? thanks a bunch =)
