Method for the assembly of the Strawberry Tartlets

  1. Once the almond shortcrust discs have baked and cooled, place a half-sphere of Ivoire 35% vanilla namelaka on top of each one. Beat the whipped ganache until its texture is soft and frothy, easy to pipe.
  2. Using a piping bag fitted with a fluted nozzle, decorate each half-sphere with some pretty piping.
  3. Store in the refrigerator for 3 hours before serving.
