Today is THE day. I will launch my very first blog entry. And what would be the best way to start? Present a light and fluffy tart, the colourful fruit tart to be exact. There were some complications with the short pastry dough but this happy-go-lucky sort of cake made it just in time for you to be enjoyed. Just look at this sweet treat. It looks like a swimming garden.
A swimming garden? Wait…I forgot something…Aaahhh yes… the island of Mainau. This precious little island has been the source of my inspiration (at least for this cake), and it is a ‘must-see’ for those of you who plan a trip to the Lake of Constance. Have you been there already? It is soooo beautiful with its colourful gardens, its gigantic sequoias (they are pretty fuzzy), and, of course, its butterflies. The bright blue butterfly has been the most interesting. So, it’s hardly surprising that this little fella made it onto this colourful fruit tart.
But that’s it for now; here is the recipe for the colourful fruit tart:
Oh, before I forget it again, there are no limits concerning your choice of fruits. So head into your garden or the next market and have fun.
With this in mind,
Treat yourself with a piece of the island of Mainau.
P.S. If you want to create those little butterflies on your own, take a look at this.
