Decorate cake with FRUITS

These are simple steps to make cake decorating using fresh FRUITS and also using whipped cream.
A pretty simple cake to whip up in a short time when you are in rush.

Ingredients:

1 x 8/9 inch vanilla chiffon cake400g whipping cream
(I used Anchor's Baker's Mix)
Half a can of cocktail fruits

For Decorating:

Kiwis, strawberries, peaches, dragon fruits, cherries, etcGlaze or instant jelly
(I used Decor Gel from Pastry Pro. You can use instant jelly to glaze the fruits)


Step by step to make Fruits cake decorated

First, bake a chiffon cake using your favourite chiffon cake recipe. A 8 or 9 inch and vanilla flavoured one works the best. Let the cake cool completely before you start decorating.Prepare the cocktail fruits by draining the juice well.
Skin and cut colourful fruits. I used peaches, kiwis and strawberries. Wanted to use dragon fruit too but found out later I didn't quite like it to be on the cake.Whip your whipping cream to stiff peak consistency. Set aside.Divide chiffon cake to two or three layers.
Spread a layer of whipped cream on one of the layers of cake. Scatter cocktail fruits on whipped cream.
Spread another layer of cream to embed the fruits. Place another layer of cake on the fruits. Repeat this step for the 2nd layer, if any.
Frost top and sides of cake with whipped cream. Smoothen.
Decorate sides of cake with a decorator's comb if you like.
Start arranging fresh fruits on cake in a circular arrangement.
For example, place peach slices next to strawberries and kiwi
Prepare glazing by adding water to Decor Gel or instant jelly. Bring to a boil. Brush on fruits to create shine and to avoild fruits from changing colour.
