Apricot Filling is great with vanilla and chocolate cakes and cupcakes. You will receive rave reviews when you layer your cakes with this tangy, tasty, fruit filling.
I always thought that this fruity filling was best served with vanilla or white chocolate cupcakes, however, after using it as a filling with chocolate cupcakes I had everyone asking for more. The combination of chocolate and apricot is fantastic and one that I will make again very, very soon.
I have included two recipes for apricot fillings. I love using fresh apricots but as they are not always available I have also included a recipe which uses dried apricots.
They are both very tasty and it is difficult to tell the difference in the finished filling.
This filling is suitable for cakes, cupcakes, cookies, pastries and can also be mixed with cake crumbs to make cake pops.
