Momof2, did you Goggle it? I bet you can find some information on the internet about how to make sugar fruit last. It is most likely very pretty to use in decorating.

Fruit is made mostly of water, and it is impossible to preserve fruit while it has all that water in it, even if you shellac the fruit. The water eventually dissolves the cells that contain it, and the fruit collapses from within. You either have to dry the fruit, or use fake fruit. Craft and decorating stores like Michaels have good quality fake fruit.
