How to make a hedgehog-shaped Pandoro
We first cut the pandoro in two parts from the top to the base. Then cut 2 cm thick slices (as in the photo), slice both halves of the Pandoro if we have to make many portions, otherwise only one will be enough.
With one of the leftover slices we cut out a triangle that will represent the hedgehog's nose
mix the mascarpone and nutella with the icing sugar,
until a smooth and thick cream is obtained.
We place the triangle that will represent the nose of the hedgehog. We spread a little mascarpone on the triangle. Spread a little hazelnut cream on one side of the slices and arrange them in ascending order about 8-10 slices.
Proceed with this operation for all the slices making them adhere well to the previous one. The last slice will be stuffed on one side only. Sprinkle with icing sugar. Decorate the nose of the hedgehog with chocolate chips instead of the eyes and nose. With the chocolate sprinkles, form the mustache and the hair of the hedgehog. To serve
NB If left over, cover with cling film and refrigerate for 1 day.
The idea is taken from the “Bon Appetit” site.
