Awesome! Today I made an amazingly tasty fresh fruit tart with shortbread crust, vanilla bean pastry cream and fresh kiwi, raspberries and blueberries.

What is not so awesome however is the crap quality of this picture (and all the others that were taken). They came out really over-saturated and super grainy. booo!! I tried to fix them in photoshop, this is the best I could do :(

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS CAMERA AT ALL.

Wow, that is a beautiful Flan, I would say all it is missing is the morior glaze and it would be perfect.

yeah, I used apricot jelly instead for the glaze. It's not as thick as the usual glaze but I'm not sure how to make a mirror glaze :)

Yeah, Apricot jam/jelly is a good substitute, if you are looking to make Mirior Glaze this is what we use in our restaurant:

1½ tsps unflavored gelatin
1 fl. oz. purified cold water
6 fl. oz. boiling water
1/3 cup superfine sugar
pinch of salt
2 fl. oz. strained fresh lemon juice

Soften gelatin in cold water. Add boiling water and stir until gelatin is dissolved. Add sugar & salt; stir until dissolved. Blend in citrus juice. Set bowl in larger vessel filled with ice and let stand until mixture is syrupy and begins to thicken, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes – do not let set. Brush paper-thin layer of mixture over top of cake or tart. Refrigerate until set. Pour second layer over; total thickness should not exceed 3/16 inch. Refrigerate until mirror is set to preferred consistency.

To re-use just microwave until warm and runny again.

It lasts months in the fridge, which is helpful for any extra.

Oh, thanks for the Llama also, Merry Christmas :)

It still looks awesome, it doesn't look grainy or over saturated. If anything I wish it was bigger, I love bit photos and dramatic close ups xD

It was the only shot I could work with (besides, notice the person standing behind it? LOL!)

I don't know! I'm too scared to take anymore pictures with it now. UGH!!
I guess I should just sit down and read the manual already.

Maybe it will help, that's what Oka does. I prefer to move and click all the settings until I learn how everything works :P

I guess it's hard to do since it is a really old camera that was given to me and that the display is so small. It's not easy to see detail on it.

It makes me miss my grainy point&click camera. I told Julien that I wanted to invest in a good camera for once :(

oh yum, i haven't made a tart for ages i need to find a better tart case recipe, the one i have been using is much too crumbly.

This one is a bit crumbly since it is a shortbread recipe but I love that!

a little crumbly is fine, the last one i tried wouldn't even come out the cases in one piece.

It's the same one that I used for my lemon meringue pie, if you're interested in trying it.

I am so glad now that I have kiwis in my fridge. *drool* This looks so delicious and I bet would be great as a lemon curd fruit tart too. :D Great job at creating delicious food as always.

This crust is actually the same one that I used for my lemon meringue pie.

Thank you!
