Car review - Wolswagen Touareg

We had it rented for a week a couple of years ago.

The car is very heavy, so it did not accelerate very fast, which can be a problem when you need to overtake on national roads.

It's spacious inside, but the trunk did not have too much room.

The seats and suspensions are not very comfortable for a long route.

Overall, we would never spend the money to buy one - there are better cars out there for the same price.

Separate the egg yolks from the whites.

Separately beat the egg whites with the remaining sugar.

Mix the two composition above.

Add the flour and the cocoa powder. Divide the composition in two.

Put one part of the composition in a tray and put it in the oven at 180 Celsius degrees for 10-15 minutes or until ready.

Repeat the process with the remaining dough.

Prepare the mango mousse filling:

Clean and cut the mango. Mash it and put it on slow fire with the sugar for a few minutes. Just until the sugar melts.

Meanwhile put the gelatin sheets in cold water.

When the mango is cooled, but still warm, add the hydrated gelatin sheets and mix until well incorporated. Let it cool!

When cooled add the mascarpone cheese and mix.

Prepare the walnut filling:

Caramelize the sugar and pour it in a thin layer on a baking paper when ready. Let it cool!

Mash it and mix it with the fresh cream, the hidrated gelatin sheets and the crushed walnuts.

Prepare the avocado glaze:

In a pan add the white chocolate and the sugar and let them melt. Add the water and let it simmer for a minute.

Meanwhile, clean and mash the mango. Add the juice of the lemon and mix.

When the chocolate is melted let it cool! Then add the avocado and mix.

Assembling the cake:

In a detachable circle add one dough layer, then the walnut filling, the other dough layer, then the mango mousse and the cover the cake with the avocado glaze.

Above the avocado glaze I put some petals of lavender flowers, just for decoration.
