Assembly and finishing

Arrange 25 g of Pressed Shortcrust in 6cm rings, press down gently using a spoon and set aside in the fridge. Make the Apple Jelly and pour 30g into 6cm rings and store in the fridge until ready to serve. In a freestanding beater, whip the ganache, place in a piping bag with a plain n°10 nozzle and set aside in the fridge. DECORATION : Roll out some tempered milk chocolate between two acetate sheets and cut into 6 cm discs. Leave to harden and then set aside until ready to serve. Mix some gold powder with some liqueur and brush onto an acetate sheet. Leave to dry. Arrange some milk chocolate couverture on the decorated sheet, cover with a second sheet and then roll out. Before it sets, cut into 2 cm discs. Place some more tempered milk chocolate couverture on an acetate sheet and use a serrated spatula to make sticks. Leave to set. Brush the sticks with the gold powder and cut into 15 cm lengths. Stick the 2cm discs 5cm from the ends of the sticks to make a decoration representing a clock face. TO SERVE : Place a dot of whipped ganache in the center of a round plate to hold the Pressed Shortcrust. Then pipe a ring of Whipped Ganache onto the shortcrust. Unmold the Apply Jelly onto a disc of milk chocolate and arrange on top of the shortcrust. Pipe 7 balls of Whipped Praliné Ganache on the Apple Jelly and then arrange a Granny Smith Apple Chip on top. In the center, pipe a ball of Whipped Ganache. Place the milk chocolate decoration on top and decorate the plate with dots of Apple Sauce.
