CHERRY COCONUT SWIRL – Cherry Ripe Insp. Recipe

=====================
++ DESCRIPTION
=====================

So it’s been a pretty long while since I first started deriving ideas for making a cherry ripe inspired cake or dessert. I think since I first scribbled stuff down in my book it was early this year (I know, talk about a long schedule LOL) The good thing about having this many recipes to get onto, sometimes it means it gives recipes more time to simmer ideas or renditions, and they end up being just the way they should be when I get around to them. This one ended up nothing like my first sketch idea, and that’s obviously a combination of new ideas, new ingredients, skills, etc.

So I had the idea of using ritz crackers that are more savoury as the base to the cake, rather than the usual shortbread or flavoured cookies just to make it more buttery. The saltiness and savoury flavour also cuts through the sweetness of other layers, like the dark chocolate ganache.

If you’re not familiar with cherry ripe, it’s a thin chocolate bar in Australia with a chocolate coating made with a traditional chocolate called Old Gold. The filling is a paste formed from glace cherries and desiccated coconut, which was a big surprise to me as it didn’t taste like glace cherry and I actually really dislike the flavour of it usually. I didn’t know this till reading the ingredients 😛

I’ve never used edible flowers before, and I really wanted a splash of colour on the top of the cake in a line like many gateau usually go for. I figured it’d be a way to keep it simple, floral and tropical matches well – and I ought to practice these techniques once in a while 😀 It was really quite an interesting cake and fun to make.

Give it a go! Have you had a cherry ripe before?
