   Syrup:
   ======
   
        In a small saucepan, bring the water and sugar to a boil.  Take
   off of the heat and cool in refrigerator.  Add Grand Marnier to cooled
   syrup and reserve.  (Note: three-fourths of this syrup-Grand Marnier
   mixture will be used in the mousse; the remainder will be used to
   bunch the various layers of the Progres.)
   
   Creme Noisette:
   ===============
   
        Put the hazelnut paste and Kirsch into a bowl and mix with a
   spatula.  Add 4 ounces of buttercream and blend well.  Refrigerate for
   5 minutes.
   
   Chocolate Cream:
   ================
   
        Melt the chocolate, then cool.  Add half of the chocolate to the
   buttercream.  Mix well, then add remainder of the chocolate (must be
   done in steps or cream will break).  Refrigerate.
   
   Assembly:
   =========
   
        Remove the biscuit from the refrigerator and cut it to the shape
   of the mold.  Put bottom biscuit into mold and brush with syrup.
   Spread layer of creme noisette on top of syrup.  Refrigerate for 2
   minutes.
   
        Add a layer of mousse, then place top biscuit on mousse.  Brush
   with syrup again, then spread with a layer of chocolate cream.  Freeze
   for 5 - 30 minutes.
   
        Pipe layer of chocolate cream on top.  Unmold and serve on tray
   with garnish of sugar and real flowers.
