Assembly and finishing
Make the sponge batter. Pour the batter into a 40 × 60cm frame (Matfer). Leave to sit for 1 or 2 hours before baking if possible. Bake at 340/355°F (170/180°C) for 12/15 minutes. Make the Komuntu ganache. Pour 950g of Komuntu ganache onto the cooled sponge still in its frame. Leave to set for 5/6 hours in the refrigerator. Make the creamy ganache. Take 600g of the creamy ganache to make the whipped ganache. Leave to set for at least 5/6 hours. Then beat to soft peaks at medium speed. Make the vanilla ganache with the remaining creamy ganache. Leave to set. Once the sponge and ganache have crystallized and cooled, cut them into 12 squares of approximately 9.5 × 9.5cm. Arrange approximately 50g of whipped ganache on each square. Using a tablespoon, on each square, create a dip for the vanilla creamy ganache. Freeze for a few minutes, then fill each dip with 50g creamy vanilla ganache. Freeze. Place each square in a 12 × 12 × 4.5cm frame. Fill to the top with Komuntu mousse (approximately 300g per frame), then fill in the sides with a piping bag to avoid air bubbles. Place some Komuntu mousse on top and use the back of a tablespoon to create an appealing texture. Freeze again.
Make the spray mix. To help the spray mix adhere perfectly to the desserts, start by applying a thin layer of Absolu Cristal glaze diluted in 10% hot water. Use a spray gun to apply a fine coating. The tempered chocolate decoration is made using a cone, just as it was 100 years ago. The number 1 is coated in gold leaf.
