This is a post on making fruits for your pies, waffles, tarts, anything! I’m going to link to this page from the other tutorials. Also, it’s going to be a work in progress because fruits are quite time consuming to make so i’ll add to this as time goes on.
4. I forgot to take a picture of this step, but it’s easy to describe. Using the blunt end of a needle, poke holes in your strawberry to make ‘seeds’. You can use a toothpick or other sharp objects, but i’ve found that the blunt end of a needle is the right shape for seeds.
I just want to address kiwi fruits – I copied how to do my kiwi fruit slices from a book called Miniature Food Masterclass by Angie Scarr. Because I have copied her technique from beginning to end I have absolutely no right to put a tutorial up on how to do it. But there is a good tutorial on kiwi canes here. This tute uses a lot of special equipment like pasta machines and nozzles and stuff but I just roll my sheets by hand. You have to be very precise with all your rolling and sizes and stuff otherwise the cane will look bad. It takes a lot of time and patience to make a kiwi cane and they’re hard, be warned!
1. Roll out a thin sausage and cut it up into lots of little uniform chunks, the more the better. Roll each chunk into a ball.
2. Gather all your little balls to make a rough triangle.
3. Press lightly to keep all the balls together, but you don’t want to press too much so that it still stays round.
