On a clean towel lay about 4 peach halves and berries to drain. Remove skin from Kiwi by peeling with a knife. Cut kiwi into about 5-6 pieces (it will be circular in shape and you will be able to see the seeds.) Cut Peach halves into about 6 pieces lengthwise.
Cut stems off strawberries and cut them into 3-4 pieces.
Arrange peaches first. Use 3 sliced peaches in each area of the cake. You should have about 6-7 areas of 3 sliced peaches each. next lay a
piece of kiwi next to each set of 3 peach area. Finally arrange strawberries on the open areas trying not to cover kiwis and peaches.
