Place a Silpat baking mat over a Silichef XL perforated baking sheet. Place a mousse ring Ø 20cm over the silicone mat.
Wrap the pastry around the rolling pin and gently place it over the mousse ring, greased beforehand.
Line the mousse ring with the pastry. Ease the pastry with your fingers, particularly along the base of the ring.
Slide the rolling pin over the ring to cut the pastry excess.
