Summer Fruit Tart

Anytime I see a bakery, I love to go inside and check out all the desserts. If an item doesn’t grab my attention, I quickly move onto the next. For some reason, every time I see a fruit tart my eyes quickly fixate on it. Maybe it’s the beautiful and vibrant colors that jump out at me and says, “Buy me, because I am as delicious as I look!” But I don’t often go by a bakery so I decided to learn how to make the best summer fruit tart myself.
