Assembly and finishing

Make the cake mix, whipped ganache and blackcurrant confit.
Use a piping bag to pipe 35g of cake mix into 6.5cm stainless steel rings. Bake at 340°F (170°C) for 10 minutes.
Beat the whipped ganache and pipe 20g into the base of your 8cm Flexipan half-sphere molds. Press a cake disk into each mold, so that the whipped ganache rises to the same level of each cake. Freeze.
Warm the blackcurrant confit and mix using an immersion blender. Using a piping bag, pipe 10g into each half-sphere Flexipan mold. Put the previous assembly on top and press down. Freeze.
Turn out your assemblies and spray them with a thin layer of Absolu Cristal.
