...and fold together gently, still with the soft spatula (avoid using a whisk, which will cause the cream to "fall") until evenly mixed.

Your bavaroise cream is ready.

Use without delay (divide out into moulds, pipe, etc.), as the bavaroise will start to set and become firmer as soon as the cold cream is added.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
