It may seem a little difficult, but making cake or candy in the shape of semicircle it’s quite simple. The tame format makes dessert a treat, especially when made in mini size. In addition, the type of coverage can be quite varied, ranging from meringue to mirrored glaze.
To get to the “dome” model, just use a silicone mold with the shape of a semicircle. Common shapes that have this more circular style also serve to achieve this same effect. Oh, and if you’re just going to use a ready made dough, just choose one domed platter to keep the shape.
When unmolding, there are only two secrets that make all the difference. The first one, which can be used if you don’t want an extremely smooth surface, is to line the mold with plastic wrap so the candy won’t stick. For desserts that are not at risk, such as mousses and ice cream, just put them straight into the molds. However, in all cases, leave the candy in the freezer for a long time for it to freeze.
The basis of the doma is also due to your creativity. It can be made from brownie, sponge cake, almond paste and even panettone. That part of the dessert depends on your taste and also the effect you want to give it as a whole ?
The candy will come out more easily if you give it a little warm. Just be careful not to overheat it, causing the dessert to melt before you can even unmold it!
