Got a call from a friend of mine. He's got a request for some sort of cake (gateau Brazil?) that has a layer of nougatine on top, but he doesn't have a stone slab to roll it out.
I was thinking that maybe he could pour out a puddle of caramel, sprinkle it with the toasted nuts, and then cut out wedges, and then put it on top of the cake. Kinda like they do for dobos tortes.
Would that work?
