Hi all. So in a couple of weeks I will be making a wedding cake for my dear friend. Most of that I have covered, save one small detail - the raspberry filling. I made a small test for her at the beginning of all of this, and she emphatically chose my homemade raspberry filling (frozen raspberries, strained of seeds, thickened on stovetop with cornstarch, sugar and lemon juice) to all others, including jarred seedless raspberry preserves.
After doing lots of wedding cake math, I have discovered I'll have to strain 10 lbs. of frozen raspberries to get enough to fill the whole cake. People - I just do not have that kind of patience!
Does anyone know of a place in the LA area that I can drive to get pre-made raspberry puree (seedless)? I don't care if it's frozen or not. It would save me a TON of work! (Alternately, does anyone have any greatly improved method to do it at home over the usual "push it through a strainer" method?)
Thanks so much!
