A Lemon Tart for T

Happy T day everyone. Stop by Altered Book Lover to see what Elizabeth and the T Gang are up to this week.
I'm at a a Pastry baking class for my spring vacation and this is the one project we finished on day 1. It's a lemon tart with a bit of whipped cream and some fruit. My crust is a whole wheat crust which is why it looks a little dark.
Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo off my cup of tea that was on my work bench so even though you can't see it, I was sipping on some tea while I worked.
Some exciting things to bake in the next 3 days. Today we made the chiffon cake so tomorrow we can make some cream cake desserts. Plus we have a sacher torte and some chocolate truffles on the agenda. Plus a few more yummy sounding treats.
So they are saying we might get a bit of snow tonight-lets hope we DON'T.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Always great to pick up new skills. The cake is divine. Yum.

Ah, you may have forgotten your tea, but I see a business card referring to coffee or tea, and almost out of camera range, a bottle of coke. So it's OK to sip your tea while you make these wonderful goodies, but the real story is told right there on your work table!

Oh wow. Puff pastry. My grandmother used to make it, so I would love to learn that!

I would gladly take snow over our forecast of severe storms, long lasting tornadoes, hail in diameters to exceed 2", and winds over 70 mph. It appears there are over 20 MILLION people in the wake of this storm which will break tomorrow.

Thanks for sharing your lovely tart and various drinks from your work bench with us for T this soon-to-be Tuesday.

And thanks again for your generosity. You may not like the spotlight, but you deserve it!

Ooh la laa that is a gorgeous looking lemon tart Erika!
What a lot of fun you must be having.
I have heard the "S" word mentioned several times today and all around the globe. Bit of an April joke me thinks.
Take care and Happy T Day

What a great thing to do in your spring vacation! I love baking. I'd love to learn to make puff pastry and a sachertorte I have never dared attempt... Your lemon tart look delish! Who was going to eat that? You are away for 4 days so you can't really take it home...
You're asking me about my postcard hobby: I am a member of an online group called Postcrossing (it's free). Have a look at
At my request I can have a random address generated (there are more than half a million members all over the world) to send a postcard to, when that card is registered, someone else (again random) sends a card to me. So every card I send, I get one back (not from the same person). That's how I got to get such a collection, because I have been doing it for years.
Thank you for visiting and happy T Day!

Your baking looks amazing! Thankfully I can't eat anything like that due to intolerances! I make up for it in other ways though.

Happy T day.
