Light my fire...and then eat it

Always one to give credit where it is due; these lovely desserts are the brainchild of Heston Blumenthal. However Heston's original dessert contained a kind of caramel ganache that offended even my sweety tooth. So taking the delightful concept of a centre piece that doubles as dessert I set about making it Ms Cupcake's own creation. The first time I made these I filled the white chocolate tubes with raspberry mousse only. As tasty as they were I wanted them to be amazing so I elaborated a little adding cointreau soaked cake and fresh raspberries. But I get ahead of myself! If you're like me and like to build your ego with high praise for sugary creations then you must try these at your next dinner party!
