Hi friends!

I have a quick question. I have a bride who wants a cake like Hillary Duff's with no frosting on it, just plain and then have pineapples, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries piled on top of each tier. (the cake is pillared). Should I coat the fresh fruit in a clear glaze to help in it not getting soggy or gross? What do you guys think? The filling will be a mango frosting and bavarian cream sleeve filling. Thanks!!

Most definately!! It will also help in the presentation. Fruit that does not have a clear glaze will tend to look withered, dry, etc. But with the glaze will look fresh and appealing.

I've made several wedding cakes with fresh fruit. I topped each tier with a thin layer of streusel before baking and then used an apricot glaze to coat the fruits. It adds a level of professionalism and sparkle!

Yes glaze for all of the reasons above. Tell the bride how it needs to be done. unglazed fruit will be a mess.
