Malice: Strawberry cheese and chocolate entremets

 Malice means mischief in French, ^^ and the look of this cake may deceive you that it's chocolately.

Malice
But there are many things inside, the strawberry cream, cheese cream and pistachio cake. Strawberry and cream is simply delicious, this time, I use my favorite cheese "Laughing cow" because the taste of this cheese is sweet and creamy, a kind of condensed milk, hehe. And you can imagine that when strawberry, cream and chocolate come hand in hand it must be great. 
After making a lot of entremets, now I wish that I have a blast freezer, -*-, because I have to wait and wait for the inserts and cake to be frozen before going on to the next step,but it will be tooooooooooo much for a home baker to have that kind of machine right? If you want to make this cake, prepare it 1 or 2 days ahead because you will need a lot of time for each of the elements to be frozen. So, most of the time that you use is for waiting not making. Anyway when you serve this cake (or eat it ^^), you will be happy and don't think about the time that you have to wait (until you making other entremets again, haha).

Would appreciate your advise advise. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe.I would like to recreate it for my birthday.

Hi
You can substitute the same amount of the gelatin powder for the gelatin sheet but you will bloom it in 1tbsp water (for 3g) and 1 1/2tsp water(for 1.5g).
I think you should use 8 inches pan ^^ and for glucose syrup you can use corn syrup instead, see the photo here, http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=155143257869605&set=a.150802084970389.40883.148994658484465&type=3&src=http%3A%2F%2Fsphotos-g.ak.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-ak-prn1%2F132486_155143257869605_4441346_o.jpg&smallsrc=http%3A%2F%2Fsphotos-g.ak.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-ak-snc6%2F168784_155143257869605_4441346_n.jpg&size=591%2C885.
