Use a piping bag with a plain round 14mm nozzle to pipe on three rounds of Whipped Ganache (about 30g). Leave a teaspoon to warm up in hot water, then use it to make a hollow in the ganache rounds. Fill each hollow with Gel. Place the Cream Mix in a piping bag with a 10mm plain round nozzle, then pipe on droplets (about 20g). Plate a few Pressed Shortbread pieces (about 15g). Complete with a few little droplets of Gel and a chocolate logo.
