Assembly and finishing touches
- Roll out the pastry dough to a thickness of 2.5 mm. Place in the refrigerator then cut out boat shapes using a 9.5 cm long boat cutter. Bake on Silpain mats in a 150°C convection oven for approximately 15 minutes.
- Spread 850 g of Sacher cake batter onto a Silpat mat inside a frame (35.5 x 55 cm). Remove the frame and bake in a 200°C convection oven for approximately 9 minutes. Let cool.
- Spread 600 g of reconstituted chocolate-praliné crunch in a half frame. Place in the refrigerator and cut out inserts using a 6.5 cm long boat cutter. Place in the freezer.
- Pipe the dark chocolate mousse (1/2) into the Silikomart® boat moulds ref: SQ054. Press in the insert and smooth the surface. Place in the freezer. Unmould. Pipe more of the chocolate mousse (2/2) into the boat moulds. Smooth and stick to the first half of the frozen mousse by turning the boat moulds upside down. Place in the freezer, then unmould. Place on Silpat mats (insert facing upwards).
- Whisk the remaining chocolate mousse and pipe 3 lines onto 2 sides using a petal tip #103. Place in the freezer. Turn over the petits gâteaux. Pipe out another 4 lines of chocolate mousse (on each side) and one more on the top of the petits gâteaux. Return to the freezer.
- Spray the petits gâteaux with a thin layer of the chocolate mixture. Place on top of the chocolate pastry. Pipe the dark chocolate mixture (at 26°C) into some of the spaces between the lines of chocolate mousse.
Tips : If you don’t want to have to spend so much time piping on the finishing touches, you can adapt as desired.
