Method

  1. To Make Tuille Cages:
  2. Cream the butter, orange zest and icing sugar together until very light and fluffy.
  3. Slowly add the honey and beat well until well mixed.
  4. Gradually add the egg whites and beat well between each addition.
  5. Beat the flour into the tuille mixture until thoroughly smooth.
  6. Cover with cling film and leave to rest for one hour.
  7. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  8. Line a baking tray with non stick Silone mats or baking parchment.
  9. Put the tuille mixture into a piping bag with a very small nozzle.
  10. To make each cage pipe an L shape.
  11. Shape each L shape into a boot and pipe some trellis detail at 45 degree angles to secure the shape.
  12. Bake for 5-6 minutes until lightly browned.
  13. Remove from the oven and working quickly with a palette knife while the biscuits are still hot; gently bend them around a rolling pin into cages holding them to keep their shape… Mind your fingers!!
  14. To serve:
  15. Pipe a small amount of freshly whipped cream into the centre of your serving plate.
  16. Secure your cage in this cream.
  17. Gently fill with fresh berries and a scoop of ice cream on the top.
  18. Garnish with caramel discs and mint leaves.
  19. To Make Caramel Discs:
  20. In a spotlessly clean saucepan add one cup of sugar and 1 cup of water.
  21. Allow to come to the boil. Don’t stir at any stage.
  22. It will begin to turn golden brown. You need to watch it carefully as it will burn quickly at this stage.
  23. When it has turned golden brown plunge the base of the saucepan in cold water to stop the caramel from cooking.
  24. Using a dessertspoon drizzle some caramel around a piece of parchment to achieve a rounded shape. You need to work very quickly as it sets very quickly.

Notes:

Kevin's warning: NB- BE VERY CAREFUL MAKING THE CARAMEL DISCS AS BOILED SUGAR CAN CAUSE FIRST, SECOND OR THIRD DEGREE BURNS IF IT MAKES CONTACT WITH YOUR SKIN.
