Baking Challenge

Designer Fruit Tart

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

Vegan Festive Fruit Tart – I found the recipe online, made a few modifications to the filling, and brushed the top with warm jelly to make it shine!

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

Make sure the pastry will mold to the tart pan without being crumbly; try your fruit design on a dinner plate first, and have fun – it will look fabulous no matter what!

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist.

Alas, the only Wisconsin twist is the shiny jelly coating. It is a mix of two different homemade jellies from Wisconsin fruits – strawberry and cherry. I’m pretty sure we can’t grow almonds, dates, pineapples, and kiwis in Wisconsin.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
