This impressive spin on a Black Forest cake uses sweet white chocolate instead of dark chocolate. The cake and cherries can be prepared ahead, but the white chocolate mousse has to be made just before using. A few hours in the fridge firm up the mousse and give the cake a chance to absorb all the sweet cherry flavor. Pointy, curved white chocolate shards give it a sculptural, modern look (watch a video of how to make the shards).
Make Ahead Tips
The cake can be assembled up to 12 hours ahead and refrigerated. Whip the cream and garnish the cake just before serving.
