-Prepare the syrup: Mix water and sugar and heat in microwave oven for 1 minute to dissolve sugar in the water. Let cool and add liqueur.

-Work the cheese cream with a spatula until it has become smooth. Add violet sweet potato (take off the skin and mash it first), honey, and cinnamon in that order and mix well one at a time.

-Line a mold with baking paper. Line the bottom with crushed biscuit.
