    Lalaloula's Note:

    This wonderful, rich and sweet, yet also fruity tarte was my birthday cake this year. It is sooo yummy and perfect for autumn. Serving this at the end of a meal is sure to impress even the pickiest guest. It looks like a ton of work, but really its quite straight forward.
