The day before you bake your cake, make the vanilla
cake mix and leave it to rest at 40°F (4°C) for 12 hours.
Make the vanilla Opalys coating and set it aside.
Make the streusel and push it through a coarse
mesh sieve to obtain evenly-sized pieces. Bake in a
fan-assisted oven at 300°F (150°C) for 30 minutes.
Line and grease the 18 × 4.5 × 4.5cm molds with beurre manié, then fill them with 260g of vanilla cake mix.
Put a sheet of baking paper and a tray on top,
so your cooked cakes have a very flat top.
Bake for approx. 25 minutes at 320°F (160°C).
Turn out, then freeze.
Spread the vanilla streusel evenly over a baking tray
lined with baking paper.
Melt the vanilla Opalys coating at 105°F (40°C), then use
a skewer to help you dip the cakes in it upside-down.
Place the cake on the streusel before the coating sets
Leave to set at 40°F (4°C) before turning the cake over.
Spread a fine layer of pre-set Opalys couverture on
a marble slab and sprinkle it with vanilla powder.
Before it completely sets, make it into shavings using
a melon baller.
