I am not real experienced but had a request for a filled cake. She would like a layer of blueberry filling and a layer of strawberry filling in a white cake. I did a trial run with just strawberry filling (used strawberry preserves) I had put an icing dam around the edge but when I cut the cake the filling ran out in the middle. Does anyone have any suggestions on this? I also thought it was too sweet, maybe I used too much filling or the wrong kind? Appreciate any advice!

I can remember watching Dr.Seuss’ “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” every December since I was little. The 1957 book was adapted into a short film during the 1960′s. It alway mesmerized me, these cupcake where inspired by The Grinch.
