Instructions sponge cake:
Whisk egg, water and Damco sponge cake mix royale light and airy in the fastest gear for 10-12 minutes, pour the batter into a 14 cm ø cake tin and bake. Once cooled, cut sponge cake in 4 thin slices.

Instructions short crust:
Mix butter and Damco croûte powder, followed by adding water in order to create a smooth dough. As soon as your dough is smooth, stop mixing and leave dough to chill. Once chilled, roll dough to 2 mm thickness, cut into 16 cm ø circles and bake.

Mix cold water and Damco custard powder top R thoroughly. Puree Frucaps mango fruit filling until smooth and add to custard. Fold in the whipped cream, in 2 parts (make sure the whipped cream isn’t too stiff).
Coat the short crust with Chocuise souplesse dark, using a brush, and place into a stainless steel ring. Place a slice of sponge cake onto the short crust and pipe a spiral of Frucaps strawberry fruit filling on top of it, followed by a layer of Bavarian mango cream. Place another slice of sponge cake, followed by a spiral of Frucaps strawberry fruit filling and mango cream. 
Using a palet knife, smooth out the top of the cake and place in freezer for 24 hours. 
Once frozen, take out of the mold and cover with a 1,5 mm layer of Damco marzipan and return to freezer.
Melt Chocuise souplesse pistacchio to 45°C and dilute with vegetable oil. Spray onto cake to create a velvety finish and decorate to your own taste.
