This summer, make berry tarts!

People get intimated by the unknown. If you don't know how easy (and fun) building a fruit tart is, you may never get that joy of putting the last piece of fruit and looking at your masterpiece with pride! 

Hopefully, this berry season will inspire you to have fun with fruit tarts. You can either buy pre-made pie shells, or you can make your own pie dough, roll it out, fill tart shell tins, bake and then fill with your favorite custard recipe, or even cheesecake filling (#yum).... 

Behind the Apron TIP: While it can be very pretty to place your berries in a circular pattern, you can choose to group like-berries together like in the above picture!

FACT: Cupcakes cure the Winter Blues

What's not to like about life imitating art when it's in the form of cupcakes?! The swirls remind us of the swirl of the wind and all it's winter glory.
