And this leads us to an important lesson: you too, brave reader, can whip up a tart from scratch. Don't let the concept intimidate you! If you're wondering what's underneath those berries, it's a simple but epic mixture of mascarpone cheese, cream, and sugar beaten together into pure culinary bliss.
In conclusion, we salute April for her continued dedication to the hunt, for having our back (like when we dropped ALL our wallet change in the middle of the Wilshire crosswalk and she helped us pick it up despite angry, embittered oncoming LA traffic), and for living life with that little extra "oomph." Without people like her, events like pie-tart-athons might never be possible.
Here at The Great American Bakery Hunt, we would like to publicly thank the entire island of Maui for lending April to us. California sure is lucky to have her!
