Berry Tasty

I've been shopping at The Fresh Market lately and while waiting for my meat to be packaged, I wandered over to the pastry section...bad idea. There, right before my eyes was the most delectable looking dessert I've seen, a fruit tart. Oh man, I wish I would have taken a picture. The dessert looked delish, but the price was unappetizing and since we're on a budget I decided to make one myself.

The tart I saw on display had at least 5 different fruits but I chose two of my favorites for my version, along with some whip cream and a tray of sponge cakes.

Are you drooling yet? Here's my ingredient list:

6 large strawberries
20ish blueberries
2 sponge cakes
1 cup of whipped cream

First I took the cup of whipped cream and put half in each of the cakes. Next, I cut each strawberry into 4 pieces. The pieces don't have to be exactly the same size and you might not use all of them. Then, I arranged the pieces around the outside of the sponge cake, using the whipped cream as "glue". Lastly, I placed the blueberries in the center of the cake.

 Doesn't it look divine! I made this one first and I'm glad a got a picture of it when I did because in less than an minute is was devoured by my hungry husband!

I plan to make several smaller versions for an upcoming bridal shower. And I'll probably mix up the fruit as well. The possibilities are endless! Hope you enjoy eating making these as much as I did.
