Our Go-To #Semi_Handade Fruit-Glazed Cake

How We Make Our #Semi_Handmade Fruit-Glazed Cake

Step 1:  Purchase a club store or grocery cake.  Inexpensive (literally, $18.99 at Costco), these are easy to jazz up with your own decorations!  For kids, I purchase figurines and use frosting to make the cake on-theme.  For adults, this glazed fruit is my go-to favorite.

Step 2:  Wash and dry berries.  The key is that these berries need to be firm and very dry.

Step 3:  Whisk up the glaze.  Most recipes call for the use of lemon and/or orange juice, granulated sugar and cornstarch.  I decided to use orange curd and cane sugar.  On low heat, I whisked them together.  I created a slurry with a tablespoon of cornstarch with the juice of one lemon, and added the zest of that lemon.

Pour the slurry into the mixture and bring to a low simmer and simmer for about 1-2 minutes.  Whip until shiny!

Remove from the heat and cool completely.

In the diagonal space on my Costco no-boquet bouquet cake, I artistically placed strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries, using the blueberries to fill in the gaps.

Using a pastry brush, I gently painted the berries for a thin, uniform glaze, and set the cake aside to set.  Then I recovered it for transport!

Here you have a gorgeous, colorful, cake that is perfectly #Semi_Handmade!
