Notes
To produce the same topping shown in the photo, simply skip the last topping of the cranberry mixture on the cake.

Use fresh cranberries and sprinkle with lemon juice. Sprinkle heavily with sugar and gently shake to remove excess. Gently spoon whole cranberries onto the top of the cake.

Note: Fresh cranberries may be rather tart and not everyone who enjoys the rich flavor of cranberry products will like fresh cranberries.
