    • Honey cream:  Put the gelatine in the water to soften.  Boil the milk, turn off the heat and leave, covered, to infuse with the verveine leaves for 30 minutes.  Remove the verveine and assemble all the ingredients except the gelatine in a pan.  Bring to the boil whisking all the time, the cream will thicken.  If lumps form you can put it through a blender.  Turn off heat and add the softened gelatine, mixing well.  Pour into an 18cm round dish, its base covered with clingfilm for easier unmoulding.  You could use a charlotte mould or a saucepan, whichever will give you an 18cm circle.  Put in freezer.
    • Chocolate mousse:  Beat the egg yolks with the honey and water until light and frothy.  Whip the cream till thick.  Melt the chocolate with the spices and leave to cool.  Add two tablespoons of whipped cream, mixing well and then carefully fold in the rest.  Fold in the honey and egg mixture.  Put in the fridge.
    • Assembly:  Place the chocolate base on a large flat-bottomed plate.  Spread a little chocolate mousse on top.  Place the frozen honey cream on top of it.  Using an icing-bag pipe a 1cm ribbon of chocolate mousse around the edge.Decoration:  Cut each egg in two and arrange on top of the chocolate mousse edge.  Decorate the centre with 3 golden eggs and the pear, rinsed and sliced into a fan.  Finish with a few chocolate hundreds and thousands.  Serve cold but not frozen.

  1. Préparation of the sponge base:
    Preheat the oven to 175°.
    Whisk the eggs and sugar together for about 10 minutes to obtain a light and airy mixture.  
    Fold in half the sieved flour with a spatula, then the remaining flour, lifting and turning the mixture gently.   
  2. Pour half the mixture into a round tin 15cm in diameter and the remaining mixture onto a baking tray measuring 28*38cm, covered with baking parchment.  Bake for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and upend the biscuit onto another sheet of baking parchment, remove the original sheet of parchment very carefully and spread the chocolate spread evenly.   
    Roll up the sponge/biscuit inside the baking parchment and refrigerate for an hour.  
  4. Preparation of the chocolate Mousse 
    Break the chocolate into pieces into a large bowl and add hot water.  Leave for 5 minutes.  As soon as the chocolate has melted, throw away the water.  Add the egg yolks, a teaspoon of vanilla essence and mix well with a wooden spoon.  
    Whisk the egg whites into stiff peaks, adding the sugar as soon as the peaks begin to form.  Continue to whisk until stiff. Fold in half the chocolate-yolk mixture and then the other half.   
  5. Assembly:
    Line the bowl with clingwrap 
    Cut the roll in slices and then place the slices side by side into the bowl to form the shell of the turtle.  Add the chocolate mousse, then finish with the round sponge to complete the cake.  Cover with clingwrap and chill in the refrigerator for 4 hours.  
  6. Unmould the cake onto a large plate and decorate with the rolls for feet and head.  Use small pieces of chocolate for the eyes.

For toddlers, don’t use chocolate mousse – use half a melon, covered in foil, brush with chocolate spread, cover with the slices of sponge roll, then decorate as above.
