Strawberry tart: Cute and fresh tart

 In Thailand, everyone in on a holiday mode, haha ^^, well it's a long weekend (it's Songkran festival, if you want to know).


 I rarely go out on this kind of vacation, there are too many people, I choose to spend my time at home instead. You can make something special when you have a lot of time, right?. 
I still have a lot of thing that I want to do, but I can eat them all, so I can make only 1-2 things at a time, ^^". Today I think about making something fresh, as the weather is very, very hot, eating fresh fruit is a good choice. 
But I can't letting go of the chance to turn it in cute dessert, so finally, I think about making this tart. The base is the tart shell and almond cream, yes, you have to bake them. But the top is red glaze covered strawberries, that give us freshness.
As this tart can be prepared ahead of time, by prepared the shell then filled it with almond cream and freeze it until you're ready to bake and assemble them. 
If you want, you can use raspberry or other kinds of berry instead of the strawberry too.
