I've seen this a dozen times on cakes and will PLEASE like to know if anyone knows what it is!!!?? Almost looks like piping gel...or some sort of gelatin....it seems too thick to be any kind of apricot jam/jelly glaze. Anyone know what I mean? icon_confused.gif Please HELP! icon_cry.gif

Yes, its strawberry glaze, and is probably sold at your grocery store right next to the strawberries.  It's basically piping gel, flavoring and red food dye.

And it tastes like crap.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

It's a glaze you dip or brush on fruit.  Here in Canada we have Dr. Oetker brand a strawberry glaze (for red fruits) and a clear glaze for other fruits.  You add water to dry package and cook a bit then brush on.  Usually you find it near gelatin.  When out I have heated strawberry/raspberry jam strained it a bit and brushed it on fruit.

It keeps the fruit fresh and prevents it from turning brown or drying out.

 

Commercially you can get the fruit glaze in containers if you do a lot.  They have clear and red ones.

Of course chocolate is the answer!

Alternatively you can find a recipe for a simple apricot glaze. Looks as good, tastes way better
