Fruit tortlettes are fun and easy to make. It is a great activity to do with the kids or to prepare for the last minute desserts. This recipe uses the Ultra Gel® Instant Fruit Glaze and Ultra Gel® Whipped Cream recipes below. The reason why you use Ultra Gel® is because it instantly thickens hot or cold liquids. In this instance it thickens the glaze and holds together the whipped cream so it doesn't weep and fall apart.
