That's enough tarts to last an entire summer.

Drupelets.

Do you know that word? I've never heard of it before, until I googled 'raspberry' while writing the Etsy listing.




Drupelets are the tiny (microscopic when you talk twelth scale!) gems that
make up the fruit cluster, which we call raspberry.



I can't remember the last time I ate a raspberry, and am suspecting
I have never eaten the fruit by itself before.

The only memory I have of it, is perhaps the slight tangy, sweet taste in the
red swirls in raspberry ripple ice cream.



 I would have liked to end the post here, and beckon the tarts a haste goodbye.

but here's one last (and I mean really final, for some time at least) tart.




 The summer blackberry tart, is really dark blue/purple instead.



Can you sense my tart-fatigue already? haha. :)

But with all the compliments that have come their way, along with the quickest sales I've ever seen on my Etsy, I doubt this is the last I'll see of them (the tarts).

Let me hastily add that, I'm NOT complaining about sales, or compliments.
Please keep them coming! :)
