Assembly and finishing

Prepare the Ice Cream, Crémeux, Sour Cherry Marmalade and Sponge Biscuit. Make the Clusters and place them in a semi-circle around a 6cm diameter cutter. Store in the refrigerator.
Use a piping bag with a 7mm diameter round nozzle to make a spiral of Crémeux (approx. 35g). Place the Clusters around a side of the spiral so they touch. Put a few Sour Cherries, Sponge Biscuit pieces in place. Finish off with a quenelle of Ice Cream.
Alter your recipe to suit the season: Swap the sour cherries for mangoes, orange segments or kumquat. Just don't forget to adjust the quantities!
