Tips on Assembling the Bowl

For best results, you will want to make sure that the rock sugar serves as the base. The bird's nest should serve the same function as well. From there, it is best to place the dried jujube and goji berries at the top. The fruit should be arranged so that it rests atop the bowl, without the fruits crowding each other in the process.
