Pistachio Cake:
    • mascarpone batter
    • pistachio pastry cream
    • Sicilian pistachio streusel

1. Place 10 Demarle 3-inch ring molds on a half sheet tray lined with parchment paper. Spray the mold lightly with baking spray, then pipe a ring of the Mascarpone Batter into each mold.

Remove the ring molds and allow cakes to cool.
