A fruiting body is a large structure with the purpose of reproduction, eg a mushroom

Yeasts are any single celled, round fungi that reproduce by 'budding'

Fruiting body usually appears at ascomycetes and bazidiomicetes. Lichens also form fruiting bodies.
Yeasts are inferior fungi, unicellular, part of the ficomycetes class
