11 oz Sugar
10 oz Eggs
2 oz Yolks
¼ oz Salt
1.5 oz Honey
1 oz Water
3/8 tsp Vanilla
4 oz Hot Water
11 oz Cake Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
Preparing Jelly Roll Sponge
-Add honey and vanilla to the eggs.
-Have the small amount of water, sugar, and salt on the stove, bring to 110 degrees.
-Put the eggs and honey on the mixer.
-Stream in the sugar water; think of it like an emulsion.
-This cake has two leaveners- foam and baking powder.
-Beat the mixture for 3 minutes, until it reaches ribbon stage. This batter has more liquid and more sugar than a genoise, therefore it will have a less full ribbon.
-Add the flour and baking powder.
-Fold just to combine.
-Pour into sprayed and parchment lined full sheet pan.
-Bake in the convection oven at 325 degrees for around 10 minutes. You want barely any color on it.
.33 oz Gelatin
1 oz Sugar
1 oz Water
10 oz Fruit Purée
.5 oz Vodka
8 oz Heavy Cream
-Bloom the gelatin sheets in your ice bath- a way to use your space and time efficiently.
-Bring the sugar, water, and ½ of the purée, just to a boil.
-The cream should be lightly whipped in a separate bowl.
-Add the second half of purée to the juice mixture.
-Add the alcohol.
-Cool down the fruit juice mixture over the ice bath slightly so it doesn’t melt the cream.
-The sponge will not absorb the mousse; it will be the consistency of really soft buttercream.
-Fold the cream into the juice and stir gently until it is smooth.
-Keep stirring it over the ice bath so it thickens just enough so when you spread it on the sponge it doesn’t run off. Stirring it with the whisk keeps the cream aerated and the mousse light.

-Have an ice bath ready.
-When the mixture reaches napé, add the flavoring, fruit purée, and gelatin.
-Pour the mixture out of the pot and into a bowl over the ice bath, stirring constantly.
-The cream should be softly whipped in a separate bowl.
-You want to chill the mixture just enough to fold in the cream and pour into the mold.
-It should just get cool; the whipped cream will make it cooler.
-Put your fingers on the side of the bowl to test how cool it is.
-If you were adding any alcohol flavoring you would add it at this point.
-When the mixture is just starting to thicken, add the whipped cream.
-Fold in the cream, making sure there are no lumps.
