Pinch salt (Pastry Wreath)
1 cup all-purpose flour (Pastry Wreath)

directions:

1. For the pastry wreath: Adjust the racks to the upper and lower middle positions and heat oven to 425 degrees. Reserve 2 tablespoons beaten egg and set aside. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and trace a 9" circle on both sheets. Flip the parchment over so tracings are facedown.
2. Bring water, butter, and salt to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in flour. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is semi-smooth and leaves a thin residue on the bottom of the pan, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool 3 minutes.
3. Using an electric mixer or a wooden spoon, add eggs in four batches, mixing thoroughly after each addition until completely incorporated and mixture becomes a smooth, sticky paste. Transfer dough to a pastry bag and cut a 1/2"-wide opening.
4. On 1 baking sheet, pipe a single circle of dough around the outside of the tracing; set aside. Refill the bag with remaining dough if needed. On the remaining baking sheet, pipe a circle of dough along the inside of the tracing. Pipe a second circle of dough snug around the outside of the first circle to make a wide circle. Pipe a third circle directly over the seam of the 2 circles.
5. Brush pastry circles with reserved egg and sprinkle almonds over wider circle. Place narrow pastry circle on the lowermiddle rack, wider circle on the upper-middle, and bake for 20 minutes. Transfer the narrow circle to a wire rack to cool.
6. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue to bake wider circle until golden brown and firm, another 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack. Pierce side of pastry with the tip of a knife to release steam and let cool completely.
7. For the whipped cream: In a large bowl, beat heavy cream, mascarpone, and sugar with an electric mixer on low until combined. Increase speed to Hold the bag upright when piping dough.

8. To assemble: Using a serrated knife, slice wide circle in half horizontally and place bottom half on a serving plate. Transfer 1 cup filling to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2" star tip and pipe around the center of the bottom circle. Place narrow circle on top and press gently. Add remaining filling to bag and pipe, using a circular or zigzag pattern to cover completely. Place top half of circle on top, dust with confectioner's sugar, and serve.
