Harmonia: Red berry entremets

If you ask me the reason why I start baking or making some entremets, I just can't answer, haha.

Because I have no reason, I just want to make it, that's all. Like this entremets, I think about making something for serving in my baking class ^^. I want to make something beautiful and yes, delicious. Berry, vanilla and chocolate have been used many time, but they are one of the best combination. This time, I make the base using chocolate biscuit (made with melted dark chocolate), then add Praline Feuilletine for interesting texture and flavour. 
Follow by the red berry mousse, jelly and vanilla mousse, the flavour that never betray me, haha. the top of the cake is whipped cream to make it more beautiful and become a canvas for decoration. 
Don't for get to remove it from the freezer to refrigerator at least 6 hours before serving, or it will be too hard to enjoy.
 I'm busy in the kitchen all the week, so don't have time to sit down and type this recipe (plus it's long, haha). Just got a lot of cookbooks last mouth, testing the recipes from them is fun but time consuming. Will share with you the recipe after adjusting them ^^.
