Finishing

Take a round cylicone moule and fill 1/3th with raspberry bavarois.  Put a layer of génoise sponge on top of it and cover with sugar syrup (heat 100g water with 100g sugar and cool off), pour a second layer of raspberry bavarois and add a 2nd biscuit circle. 

Take a heart form cylicone moule and fill with a layer of raspberry bavarois and a small biscuit cercle. Put in the freezer. 

 

Take out the round cake and cover with a smooth layer of raspberry jelly.  Do the same with the hearts but then with the white chocolate coating and dip them into a layer of roughly crushed pistachios. 

Decorate the hearts with 3 frozen Fertodi raspberries and some chantilly tips. 

Put the hearts on one half of the round cake and decorate the other half with chantilly tips, frozen raspberries and some mint leaves.
