Inoubliable Amour: Unforgettable love, I just can't forget you

It's a normal thing that happens to everyone (Ok, I know there are some very very lucky people in the world that never had their heart broken, but it's rare).

Inoubliable Amour
Chocolate, Berries and Kirsch entremets
When I think about heart broken, I still believe that there are some things that we can't forget, it's in our memory and always be. Well, I'm in that mood too -*-.
But for me I tried to let my thought sink into my cake, I couldn't stop thinking about making this cake. So, I created it base on a fact that even it's hurt but there are some happiness, sweetness, a moment that felt like dreaming, and yes I won't forget it.
--- Story Chart --- 
Starting from the top, it's a world of you and me, the moment that we saw each other and couldn't take our eyes off each other, felt like the time stopped.
The strawberry jelly is the color of cheek that blushes, each time that the eyes met, pure and sweet.
And the world turn into pink color when we're in love, sweet and vibrant (I add a bit of lemon juice to brighten the mousse) ^^, it's the happiest moment.
Anyway, the color fade, the Kirsch in the bavarois is a lot, the time that we couldn't separate truth from lie or lie from truth, it's still sweet, lingering but we know that it won't last long.
Here come the truth, bitter and intense but you can still taste the sweetness and smell the intoxicated fragrance from it (not too bitter ganache, lightly sweet chocolate cake and fragrance from Crème de Framboise and chocolate), yes the love has gone but the memory will stay with us forever.
When I told my Mom the name of this entremets, she said that it's a pity to give this lovely and delicious cake such a bad name ^^", anyway for me it's not bad it's something to remember, haha.
You can change the name of the cake, if you want, but for me, remembering something that's both sweet and bitter makes people grow up (even I'm not young at all, hehe).

Suggestion: Best serve with hot tea, coffee makes the cake taste strange, (in my opinion).

Spread the tempered chocolate over a piece of plastic use comb (chocolate comb) to make the chocolate into strip, then roll the plastic over a small cylinder shape (glass is ok) and let it dry.
