I’m officially kitchen-less and it feels so weird! I’m living in that limbo moment of time where I’m still in Salt Lake City, minus a house, and not quite to Charlotte, in a rental. All of my normal cake supplies and baking tools are packed in boxes, sitting in a storage unit, and I’m completely relying on my sister’s house for anything I might have forgotten that I needed during this month. So when it came time to make this peaches and cream cake, I knew I could count on my friend Natalie (and her kitchen tools!) to help me pull it all together. (She’s the person I started this girl’s night with too!) It was also a really good excuse to get together to make one more cake before I head east!
After my farmers market visit (and the whole bag of peaches that I bought!) I wanted to find another use for the yummy peaches other than just for ice cream!
I decided on some fresh fruit tarts because they are delicious but also really pretty on a plate. If you have guests over or are planning a summer soiree, these tarts are perfectly bite-sized for mingling and oh-so yummy too!
But I couldn’t just make any regular fruit tarts, I had to highlight peach season! So these peaches and cream tarts were born!
I wait all year long for the peaches to start hitting the local stores, here in Utah, and the time is here!
I stopped by the farmers market over the weekend (you’ll see more of that trip on Wednesday!) and picked up some yummy peaches from a local farm. I could go on and on about local produce or our market here in SLC, but I’ll save that for later.
Instead, let’s talk about the yummy things you can create with fresh peaches….like peaches and cream ice cream!
