  9. Add half of the cheese cream over the crust and level it well. Then poor ¾ of the jelly on top . Put the rest of the cheese cream in a sac a poche and put it on top of the gelly very easily. When finished, level it gently with a spatula. Ornate with the rest of the jelly by pouring drops on top of it. Drag with a tooth stick through the drops and create hearts then you can put some fresh blueberries on top.
