    ASSEMBLY

    Spread 120 g of reconstituted crunch in a round chablon mat. Unmould then place in the freezer. Divide the lemon sponge cake batter between 4 Silpat mats (400 g each) using a 35.5 x 55 cm frame. Remove the frame and bake in a 200°C convection oven for approximately 7 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack and let cool. Refrigerate overnight. Remove the sponge cake sheets from the mats, turn over and imbibe each sheet with 35 g of mojito syrup (crumb side) using a pastry brush. Spread 350 g of confit onto each sheet (crust side). Set aside at room temperature. Cut the sheets lengthwise in half (27 x 35 cm). Roll up starting from the 35 cm side to form rolls measuring approximately Ø4 cm. Place the rolls into log cake moulds (5.5 x 53.5 cm) and place in the freezer. Cut each roll into two 14 cm long pieces. Cut each piece in half slightly on an angle (1 cm slant) then cut the last piece on an angle on one end to obtain 5 identical pieces. Line 36 Ø6 cm rings with 6 cm high rhodoid strips. Pipe out 40 g of rum bavarian cream on an angle in each ring. Press the pieces of rolled cakes into the bavarian cream then place in the freezer. Unmould and spray with the glaze. Place on top of the rounds of white chocolate crunch, affixing them with a dab of confit. Decorate with green shiso sprigs, fresh coconut curls and the chocolate grass decorations.
