I have the best Granddaughter in-law in the world,  This girl can bake, cook, works a full time job, and then comes home and bakes cakes, decorate cakes,  The full show. She commissions out her decorating skills to different clients around the Palm Springs area.  Getting to the recipe and story.  One of the other grandkids had a birthday party the other night,  and of course Grandma and Grandpa were invited.  And Sharla the baker came with this dessert for all of us.  A "Fruit Pizza."  Never heard of such a thing.  Well anyway,  it's great.  (I must have lived a sheltered life)
