Baking Challenge

Designer Fruit Tart

Give your tarts a name based on the flavors and decoration – and tell us about your recipe.

Risk-taker Tart

Now that you survived this challenge, what words of wisdom do you have to share?

I went with the show-stopper challenge because as a business owner, you take risks every day. Have no fear and go for it!

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist.

All the fruit I used for my tarts came from a local business here in Milwaukee called Pete’s Fruit Market. A business that started in 1963, by a family from Greece who couldn’t speak a word of English. 55 years later Pete has created a business that embodies the term "family business". He took risks and it paid off in the end. And as a business owner myself, I appreciate this.

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
