  1. Line 10 PVC tubes 7.5 cm / 3 in by 2.5 cm / 1 in diameter with acetate.
  2. Line a half sheet pan with a nonstick rubber mat. Place the PVC tubes on the sheet pan in a standing position and freeze.

  4. Place the brown sugar cake on the plate.
  5. Remove the sorbet from its mold and take off the acetate. Lay the sorbet on top of the cake.

  7. Lay a strip of pâte de fruit across the top of the sorbet.
  8. Place 5 g / .18 oz of the compote on the portion of pâte de fruit that rests on the plate.
  9. Temper the sorbet for 1 to 2 minutes and serve immediately.
