The cake will be presented as an individual sized dessert and starts with a chocolate hazelnut sable Breton cookie base with a caramel dark chocolate ganache. Next, a 72% Venezuelan dark chocolate mousse hides a hazelnut praline-coffee cremeux centre with the insertion of a layer of moist chocolate cake and more chocolate mousse to complete the cake. The NC3 is finished in a milk chocolate velvet with milk chocolate caramel glaze dripping down its sides, while a salted caramel hazelnut macaron garnishes the top with some chocolate fans, toasted hazelnuts, chocolate rocks and fleur de sel.
