I think this is going to be like one of the recipes that I'll keep reusing over again in time. I love desserts and baking desserts, but sometimes I want something that's like not a cakey, not chocolateyx. And a fruit tart is just that. It just makes you feel all happy and healthy inside eating all those fruits! For my aunts birthday last Saturday, I was trying to think of something that wasn't too heavy or too decadent. I was either going to go for a fruit tart or a honey spice cake :). The honey spice cake would've taken a bit too much time, and I didn't have a bunt shaped pan for presentation, since it's for a birthday party after all. My mother literally told me, an hour before the party was going to start that there was a party that was going to go on. I scrambled my brain together and made this. What I also love about this recipe, is the tart crust. It's a sweet crust! Which is awesome~ I've always had tart shells that were more on the plain side, so this was something different, something nicer~ Decorating the fruits was so fun, you could design it anyway you want. The more variety of fruits, and the different colors the better. Sadly, my closest grocery store didn't have any kiwi in stock :( But I still think the results of my fruit tart still came out reaaal purdy :) Enjoy the recipe!
