If cake or cupcakes just aren't your thing, consider a table of homemade tarts for your shower, party or reception. These bite size treats are a delicious alternative to cake. Plus, they look pretty all lined up on a table! Tarts are easy to make and the shells can be baked up to a month before hand, making them ideal for a homemade wedding.
Here's what you will need:
1 recipe for tart shells. We like this one!
1 recipe for lemon curd. We used this one.
Tart shells in different shapes and sizes. Available at kitchen shops.
Fresh berries. We used a mix of blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries.
Bake and cook the tart shells. You can store these for about one month in the freezer so that the day of, the tarts just need to be filled with the custard and topped with berries. Make the lemon curd and let it cool. Wash berries. Fill the tarts with lemon curd and top with berries.
Line the tarts up all in a row on a table, add dessert plates, and a sign!
