Bake at 320°F (160°C) for approx. 15 minutes. Freeze. Use the crunchy frosting to ice the muffins. Make thin sheets of pre-hardened Raspberry Inspiration between two pieces of confectionery dipping paper and cut them into flower shapes, each with six petals and an approx. diameter of 8cm. Leave to harden. Put the Raspberry Inspiration muffin in the center of the plate. Use the confit to create a decorative design around the plate. Whip up the Yuzu Inspiration whipped ganache and place six scoops of it around the Raspberry Inspiration flower. In each scoop, make an indent which runs into the center of the flower using a teaspoon. Fill the indents with raspberry confit. Then stick the flower onto the muffins using a dab of whipped ganache and put a scoop of raspberry sorbet with a diameter of approx. 3cm at its center.
