Idea Munching: The Magic Toyshop

Lethal Black Forest Biscuits - Be afraid, be very afraid.

I've been avoiding this post because I knew I would have to make a 'batch' of Lethal Black Forest Biscuits (for flavour-research purposes, you understand). I call them lethal becuase they are easier to make than s'mores and, being less sweet, you can pack more of them in. Don't say I didn't warn you...

Ingredients: (as shown)
1 package Bourbon Creams
1 tin cherry pie filling
1 can whipped cream, pressurised

Assemble open faced. This has two advantages:
1) It's easier to fit into your mouth
2) Two halves of biscuit mean double the amount you can make.

Of course, for my final recipe I am thinking of something much more sophisticated than this. It won't be easy to find a new way to present  Black Forest Gateau - it's been done to death already. Though one could say the same thing about fairytales like Rapunzel, Red Riding Hood or Cinderella. There must be room in the world for one more adaptation.

For inspiration, I am looking to the following text from the book:
"... you're so fresh and innocent [...] something to change and destroy." (p.152)

"The cake seemed extremely exotic and unlikely, a figment of the imagination." (p. 168)
