Help! Cake gets wet from fresh strawberry...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone,icon_smile.gif I'm hoping someone would help me to solve my problem...

 

Every time I decorate cake with some CUT fresh strawberries makes the cake wet.icon_cry.gif  I know one of solution would be use uncut strawberries or decorate the cake with cut site up (not to touch the cake surface with the cut side)  BUT sometimes, I want to decorate the cake with the cut side down (touching the cake) for a nice look.  Cake looks soooo pretty for the first few minutes after laying these fresh cut strawberries but then juice starts coming out as time goes by.  Then cake is wet by the time I serve them.  Is there any way to solve this problem???  Someone, please help me!

Have you tried brushing the strawberris with clear glaze?

Toss the strawberries with a bit of sugar (enough to coat) and lay them out in a single layer on a double layer of paper towels cut side down. Let them sit 20-30 minutes. Take another double layer of paper towels abd press firmly on the strawberries until they are dry as possible. This should extract a good amount of juice. These should be good for serving on a cake for a couple of hours without getting the cake juicy.
