Need help breaking down this dessert.

I am trying to construct this “lemonade parfait” of sheep’s milk and lemon. I am pretty sure I’ve got the actual parfait down, but I can’t figure out to make the “honeycomb” spun sugar/honey decoration surrounding the dish. Any ideas if it’s made of anything accept sugar or any techniques on how to make such a thin, delicate ring? Thank you!

I believe it’s from Gordon Ramsay’s Royal Hospital Rd location. As far as I know, there isn’t a recipe out there...

LwKw - here are two links on how to make something LIKE the honeycomb circle.
One is from Gordon Ramsay, but for a berry dessert, and one if from Breyers (the ice cream people, so well tested).

Neither is the delicate almost bangle-bracelet shape in the photo. I suspect it is made with a very thin honey mixture, poured quickly onto or into a cold mold to help it set. Maybe you can find something similar in other dessert-expert books, like those of Rose Levy Beranbaum.
Side note - I often find that fancy dessert garnishes made with precision in a top restaurant or bakery are very difficult and sometimes impossible to make exactly at home. But often, I can get close on size, texture, color, taste.
Good luck with the lemon-sheep milk dessert.
