Things you need:

  • A round cake
  • Fruits of choice
  • Apricot glaze
  • Royal icing or butter icing

Decorating tips:

For a cake that is decorated with fresh fruits like this one, it is always preferred to have the fruits glazed with apricot glaze to prevent the fruits from drying, thus maintaining a fresh look all the time .

All you need to do for this kind cake is, firstly cover your cake with icing of your choice.

Next, arrange the fruit and brush apricot glaze all over them.

Finally, pipe your birthday message on the cake and your cake is ready.

Here is a simple apricot glaze recipe you can use:

  • 230g apricot jam
  • 2 tbsp water


Place apricot jam and the water in a saucepan and heat gently. When the jam softens, remove from heat and sieve mixture through a fine sieve.

Reboil the sieved mixture slowly until it reaches a coating consistency. Remove from heat and cool before using.

To use the glaze, use a pasty brush and gently brush it over fruits. Too much of the topping will show a jelly like appearance to your cakes. As such, try not to brush too much of the glaze.
