Clear Glaze for Fruits

Be it decorating a cake, tart or pie.  If you are using fruits as part of your decoration, you'll need to apply a layer of glaze over it to give it a shiny gloss and to 'trap' the moisture within the fruits.   I've tried a couple of recipes and these two are my favourites to use :)

- Mix both ingredients together, stir to quickly dissolve jam with hot water.
- Apply mixture over fruits with a small brush.

Glaze #2

1/2cup water
1/4cup sugar

1/4cup water
1tbsp corn starch

-  Add 1/2cup water and 1/4cup sugar in a small saucepan, over medium heat, stir until sugar dissolved.
-  Mix corn starch with 1/4cup water together and pour this mixture into the hot mixture on the stove, while pouring it in, keep stirring constantly. Allow the mixture to simmer for one to two minutes until it has thickened, then remove the pan from heat.
- Set aside to cool in room temperature,then brush it on the fruits.
