Hannah Rebecca EvansI have never done it untill the other day, i had carved a cake and could not get the buttercream to stick without it going to crumbs and loosing to much of the shape, so i used a soft easy to spread jam instead before the icing and the scraps tasted very nice, I also put it in chocolate cake pop mix. Yummy!!18 hours ago

Ali FruinI do both some chocolate cakes have buttercream and jam and some don't, it depends on how I feel when baking and the guys at my work don't mind as long as it's cake18 hours ago

Gemma PotterChocolate buttercream and either Black Cherry or Raspberry jam if it's a chocolate sponge cake and chocolate buttercream and Nutella for a praline sandwich. I always use two fillings unless the request states otherwise!18 hours ago

Janet SandhamNope, never. I wouldn't refuse a slice though :-)17 hours ago

Siân Forward-MartinI have never tried it but I imagine black cherry jam would go very nice.17 hours ago

Evie SteadmanCherry jam maybe x17 hours ago

Tessa BradleyDepends what jam cherry would be nice!17 hours ago

Aiden MooreI personally wouldn't put jam in a chocolate cake at first thought- maybe it'd add to the overall effect if it were chocolate orange and you used marmalade, or if you used black cherry- my first instinct would always be buttercream or whipped cream. It's always good to experiment with these things though!17 hours ago
