Nice concept and I'm happy that you're showing interest in creativity in the culinary field. Just a few suggestions:

1. Instead of a white chocolate drizzle, use the fruit and make a coulis instead. The white chocolate looks like it hardened onto the plate and cannot be used as a functional sauce.

2. If you'd rather not use a coulis, then make a creme anglaise or ganache. If you make a ganache, then you can use a paint brush to create a cleaner and more visually appealing look.

3. Maybe change the color of the plate so that the sauce can stand out more.

4. Spread out the raspberries instead of bunching them to one side.

Hey, great job. It looks like a dessert that you order in a very fancy resturant.

Be careful with kiwi, tho.... it's a fruit that quite a number of people are allergic to. I know for me, that if there is kiwi on the plate, or any chance that it might have touched the food in question, I can't get close to it. Even a teensy amount of Kiwi will close my throat.... and I'm finding more amd more folks with that problem. It's a bummer, I know!

thanks for the suggestions iron chef and yea yur right that chocolate did harden after being in the fridge for a day but it looked a lot better when i first stripped it. I was actually thinking about doing a ganache but i didnt think i was gonna be leaving it over night.
