Pastry Between Cakes
Using pastry filling between cakes gives excellant flavor and adds moisture. It is also an ideal filling for cake rolls. Some of our favorite combinations are: yellow cake with lemon filling, chocolate cake with raspberry filling on one layer and Bavarian cream on an additional layer, white cake with strawberry filling; the possibilities are endless!

Pastry Fillings In Cookies use pastry fillings in  thumbprint and sandwich cookies. The sandwich cookie is made by simply taking 2 cookies made from your favorite sugar cookie recipe and putting the pastry filling between for a sweet, delicious cookie. 
Pastry Fillings As a Candy Center
For a delicious 2-layer candy center, mix up fondant using dry fondant and the recipe included on the package. Add 3 Tablespoons icing fruit. Line your candy mold. Fill 1/3 way full with fondant/ icing fruit mixture and squirt pastry filling over the top. Seal with chocolate and put in freezer until set. Our favorite filled candy treat: Raspberry Icing Fruit and Raspberry Pastry Filling Combination.

Pastry Fillings For Ice Cream
Use pastry filling "as-is" on top of ice cream for a great way to use up unused fillings, or for a unique topping not found in grocery stores. To create your own flavored milkshake:
Mix 2 cups softened ice cream with 1/2 cup
filling in a blender. Add a small amount of
milk if too thick. 
Gourmet fillings ready to use as filling in your cakes.
STORING: Store in the refrigerator after opening. An opened tube will keep 6 months in the refrigerator. I usually tie the end off with a rubber band and then put them in Tupperware. Some ladies have frozen them with success.

IDEAS & INFORMATION:

TO USE: Torte cake wth cake leveler, lifting off top with cake lifter or board. Use decoraor's bag with an open coupler, fill with any buttercream icing. Make a "wall" around the outer edge. This holds the filling in and it is very important not to have gaps where it can ooze out. Cut the end off the Pasty Filling bag and add as much filling as you like. I wouldn't spread it too thick for wedding cakes in case the layers may shift. Spread with angled spatula. Return top layer of cake. Ice as normal or use the cake icer tip.
