Fruit tart, with shining and glossy fruits in the center always look so tempting. Sometimes I wonder what type of glaze did they use to make it shine so nice. I know that we can use Apricot Glaze and Piping Gel to do the trick. But today as I was leafing through my book titled “Cake Decorating for Dummies” (don’t laugh at the title, I got it at half price from MPH) there is a recipe on how to make your own Fruit Glaze.
So, for the ultimate shine - and also to start using my soon-to-expire Corn Syrup, I tried making the glaze today. The recipe only uses 3 ingredients but unfortunately following it exactly results in a very watery glaze. I’ve adjusted the quantity and this is my version, slightly thick and not too sweet.
Apart from this glaze, you can also try to make your own Apricot Glaze and Piping Jelly. You could also buy these items in most bakery ingredient shops but it is quite thick. Add a little warm water to make it slightly of a thin consistency, to work with. Cheers.
