Apricot cake, subbing the dried fruit

I am following a recipe for an apricot cake. I will be substituting the dried fruit (probably will plump in warm water first). Judging from the recipe photo, about 12 fresh halves were placed on top of the original cake just before baking. So should I do the same with the dried halves? Or use extra? Or chop coarsely and mix with the batter (which by the way is leavened with beaten egg white and chemical leavener).

I have a gut feeling the plumped halves will not be as pretty as the fresh ones (if I am reading your post correctly). I would chop dice size and mix in as you suggest.
