Cut the cake or bread into thin slices.
Line the base and sides of a 5-cup basin or mould (or use 6 small, individual containers.) Leave sufficient cake for the topping.
Cook the fruit with a very little water and sugar to taste; do not over-cook it. If you dislike pips, sieve the cooked fruit.
Pour the warm fruit into the lined basin, mould or containers. Any surplus juice can be served as a sauce.
Cover with the rest of the cake then with greaseproof paper.
Put a lightweight plate (or plates) on top.
Leave overnight in a cool place.
Turn out and decorate with fruit and leaves. Serve with single cream.
