Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works very well and has a good flavor. It is helpful to mix the sugar and the cornstarch together really well before adding them to the liquid. This helps prevent lumps. My second attempt turned out perfectly... the first one, not so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I absolutely love this recipe as well as the people I made cakes for. The only change that I made is that I used fresh strawberries. I used 16 oz. of fresh strawberries, pureeing 1/2 and cut the other into chunks. Smells wonderful and taste wonderful. I have also used this recipe for fresh peaches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my go-to filling. Even my 6 year old asks for it all the time! He gets so disappointed when I do not fill a cupcake with the strawberry filling. Check out how we've used the filling:
