Chicken Farm Baker's Project # 46 - let's bake your favorite tart: Raspberry and meringue tart

 Oh, I really miss the Chicken Farm Baker's Project, I already skip 2 of them because of many problems. Finally, I can do it now.

Raspberry and meringue tart
 For this month, our host (Khun Ya (Sana)), wants all of us to enjoy the tart, esp. the one that we want to eat. For me, I really love lemon meringue, but it will be boring to making it again, so I turn to something more interesting in color like raspberry.
I'm ready to eat NOW!!!!!!!! 
So, rather than making something super complicated (with a lot of elements as I like to make for Chicken Farm Baker's Project, hehe), I go on with something I really want to eat.When I imagine that super red raspberry that will contrast with the white cloud of Italian meringue, haaaaaaa, it will be very lovely. The taste of tangy red curd and sweet Italian meringue, they are made for each other ^^.
Well, while taking a photo, I have my customer ready with her fork, haha, so hope you enjoy this lovely tart as much as my niece.
