Fruit glaze

FruitTart

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 …
