The best way to store the tart
-The tart can be stored in the fridge or at room temperature. If stored in the fridge, I would recommend covering it with plastic wrap or putting it in a sealed container. If stored at room temperature, I would recommend keeping it in an airtight container.
You can freeze the tart. I would recommend freezing it without the whipped cream so that it doesn’t become discolored. Once frozen, you can thaw it overnight in the fridge or for a few hours at room temperature. Then, add the whipped cream before serving.
The tart will last for 3-4 days in the fridge or 2-3 weeks at room temperature.
