For the caramel sauce:

Cook the mixture to soft-ball stage (115°C).
Add the cream and vanilla essence.
Continue to simmer until syrupy. Allow to cool.
For the parfait:
Boil the sugar and water to 110°C.
Slowly pour the syrup into the beaten egg yolks, while whisking.
Whisk until thick and light in colour.
Add the rum and melted chocolate. Blend into the mixture.
Fold in the whipped cream and add the caramel sauce gently in between.
Transfer the mixture to a lined mould. Freeze until set.
To un-mould, rub the sides of the mould with your hands or allow to sit at room temperature for a minute and un-mould.
For the matcha doughnut:
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
In another bowl, mix the wet ingredients until combined.

Roll into balls and deep fry until golden brown and light in weight.
For the red wine chocolate sauce:
