The most freq European dinner party dessert is a combo of cheese & fruit (usually grapes). I chose this for PAC since it fit that ingredient profile & the presentation intrigued me. I took 1 liberty w/the prep & did not peel the grapes (I liked the added colour). I also added a bit of mint, mainly for colour again. The amt of cream cheese mix is more than enough for 2 4 oz rds of Camembert. I was not able to get 6 oz of the mix between 2 halves of a 4 oz Camembert rd, so had quite a bit extra. I found the assembly awkward, but managed it as you described. The taste is very good & this will be repeated, prob w/the Camembert rd split & the cream cheese mix mounded on ea half. Pls see my rating system & thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
