    I have already made the raspberry filling for a cake and it is in the fridge setting up, but I think it has way too many seeds. Will it ruin the cake? Is it too late to adjust the seed to "jelly" ratio?

    Thanks!

    If you remove the seeds the quantity will diminish by  1/4  (if there as as many seeds as you think there are)

    I would take it out and pass it through a sieve. 'Jelly like' filling  is the way to go . Sounds like a lovely cake .

    Ok, I've got it over a sieve, but it's pretty darn jelly-fied already! Can I add anything, like maybe another dose of cornstarch and water, re-heat, then put it back through the sieve? I'm definitely not too worried about loosing quantity because I've got these mini cake pans that have a little spot in the middle for a filling.

    Thank you!

    I would think that you would be able to work it through the sieve using a rubber spatula.

    Heat it slightly  and whisk it , then  follow with what cheflayne said.

    Remelt it and pass it thru a sieve or cheesecloth
