Can you please help me with this one? I have made cupcakes with strawberries, etc. on and after standing a while a syrup forms that is running down the cupcakes and making everything sticky. How do I use fruit on cakes/cupcakes without them making the syrup? icon_rolleyes.gif

After washing the strawberries, make sure they're completely dry Use a papertowel. Next make sure they're @ room temp if they're straight from the fridge they tend to sweat.

Fruit really needs a glaze or it starts to deteriorate rapidly. The glaze seals the fruit to help keep it fresher and looking more appetizing longer.

As for the fruit starting to drip - that's what fruit wants to do. You can get around it for short periods of time, but you can also work with it.

Many fruit desserts have a dam piped around the edge to contain the juices. This can even be done on a cupcake. Pipe a little well to place the fruit in. It keeps the cakes neat and clean.
