Assembly and finishing

Feed each sponge with 400g of Lemon Vanilla Syrup. Spread 1000g of Caramel Apple Compote on each sponge. Then spread 400g of Whipped Ganache on top and roll up in a log. Press the log to ensure an even shape and then place in the Large U molds. Blast freeze. Coat the logs with the remaining Whipped Tanariva Ganache. Finely chop some milk chocolate beans in a food processor to obtain small granules of chocolate. Take care not to over-process which could result in the chocolate melting. Coat the logs with the chopped milk chocolate. Spray the logs with the hot Absolu Spray Glaze. Use some tempered couverture and a piping bag with no nozzle to create chocolate decorations with some cocoa powder (see photo). Add a house logo.
