Prepare the layers:

Mix the flour with the almond powder and the powdered sugar.

From this composition, make two layers: one thicker than the other.

Put the composition on medium fire for 5 minutes. When ready let it cool a bit. While still warm add the hydrated gelatin sheets. Let it cool!

When cooled, add the yogurt, mix a bit, and then add the mascarpone cheese and mix until well incorporated.

Prepare the white chocolate filling:

Melt the chocolate together with the butter. When melted, add the fresh cream and incorporate. Add the hydrated gelatin sheets and mix.

Let it cool!

Then incorporate well the beaten cream.

Assembling the cake:
On a plate, add the big layer then add the papaya mousse, then the smaller layer and finally the white chocolate mousse.

Cover the cake with the cream and add the papaya seeds as you wish.
If you have you can add above some biscuits (I made some, with 1 egg following the recipe of the dacquoise layers)
