Place 3 rows of tennis biscuits on a piece of foil.

Place rows length wise side by side.

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the biscuits.

Add a row of cherries down the centre.

Lift the foil from sides of the pyramid leaving the center biscuits to form a base, pinch the two sides together to close.

Leave to set in the fridge overnight.

Before serving, spread the cake with whipped cream and garnish with the chocolate.
