I have seen some really beautiful barrel cakes and have a few questions on how to assemble. Do the Kit Kat bars needs to be divided individual or leave whole, are they suppose to be taller than the cake, and last with the strawberries how do you or what do you use to glaze them. Those cakes are beautiful. thank you Love love this site
For my barrel cake, I separated all the kit kats so they sat even. I made them taller than the cake to help hold the candy. As far as strawberries, I know some people use apricot glaze (or heated apricot jam) to glaze them.
