if you have some bits of cake left, some dark chocolate, cherries, and some water balloons, make a cherry gateau bowl.
melt chocolate in a double boiler, then transfer it to a narrow, high sided bowl. inflate the ballons (with air, not water, lol) and dip and roll half way into the chocolate, gently stand on wax paper on a tray, and refrigerate to let the chocolate set up.
after it's hardened, repeat the dipping so it's double thick.
once they've hardened, snip the balloons and carefully remove from the chocolate. you now have dark chocolate bowls.
make a cherry compote (boil down cherries in a likttle water, sugar, brandy, and lemon juice) and let cool. the cherries should just be soft not mush, and the liquid syrupy.
place small chunks of chocolate cake in the chocolate bowls, ladel in the cherry compote to fill the bowls, then top with whipped cream and a couple of fresh cherries.
