This is what happens when you try to figure out something very late at night/early in the morning. I’d like to coat the outside of a loaf cake with blueberry jam and finely shredded coconut. I’m going for something like a snowball or lamington look, depending on your frame of reference. The blue is important.
I don’t know that I can find anything other than blueberry preserves and I know the chunks of berry are a problem. If I warm the preserves and strain them or put them through a food processor, can I still coat the cake and have both the blueberry and coconut adhere?
If you have any other ideas how to accomplish this - and I’d really prefer to avoid buttercream - I’m all ears.
