Spray at 28-30°C on the frozen frosting.

5. Plant-based Cookie


In a mixing bowl with a paddle attachment, soften the Puratos Mimetic Incorporation to a creamy texture and incorporate the Puratos Tegral Satin Cream Cake Plant-based. 

Laminate at 3 mm and cut out heart shapes.

Bake in a deck oven at 180°C for 12-15 min. open damper 


Mix the sifted powder sugar and lemon juice together, add the food colouring to have a light pink shade. 

Apply on the baked and cooled down cookie. Keep it to set for two hours before using. 

6. Fondant Décor Plant-based


Bring the water and agar agar to a boil and keep simmering for 2 min., then add the glucose and Puratos Mimetic Incorporation and lemon juice. 

In a mixing bowl with a paddle attachment, first add the sifted powder sugar, then add the warm liquid and mix. 

Adjust the texture by adding more water or powder sugar.  

Cover it up and rest for 24 hours before using.

Laminate as thin as possible to cut the flower shape and keep them to dry overnight.

Build-up and decoration

On tray with a Silpat® lined-up with acetate 6x16 cm diameter ring, pour 225 g of cheesecake mousse in the ring. Then press the frozen disc of fruit filling and the lemon cake into the mousse and freeze.

Apply the velvet spray and move it onto the crumble.

For the flower decoration: spread some tempered white chocolate on a granite slab and scrape with small tart ring 8 cm diameter to create the chocolate curls to be assembled together to create the flower.
