Jardin d'amour: White chocolate, caramel and berry plate dessert



I always dream about desserts and sweet, what I want to eat or what I want to make ^^.

Some of them can be made, and many of them are only drawings in my sketch book, haha. But I'm still happy to dream and let my imagination go wherever it wants.
Lately I started to think about plate dessert, it's not like making entremets, they come in one plate not one piece, ^^. The plate dessert can be simple or complicated, but the most important thing is the tastes of each elements need to accompany other thing in the same plate.
For this plate, I use caramel, white chocolate and berry and the main flavors, they have to be eaten together. Both caramel and white chocolate give sweet taste, so the tangy sweet of the berry jelly will brake the sweetness down. The decorate item are dark and white chocolate, dark chocolate is not only for its brown color, but the taste of it is needed too, a bit of bitterness make this dessert more enjoyable, hehe, the white chocolate is added because I want the white butterfly ( the name of the dessert is garden of love so I want the butterfly, haha), so if you want to create this menu at home you can omit it.
I had a lot of fun making this dessert, ^^, when my family members told me that they wanted to eat it, I rushed to the refrigerator and assemble the desserts for them. Putting each element into the plate, tried my best to make it beautiful, I have a feeling that I fall in love with the plate dessert already, haha.
