For the berry soil, I had expected dense, beetroot-coloured crumbs but instead there were two pieces of torn, featherlight sponge which tasted only faintly of berry. The actual rubble on the plate appeared to be a mixture of freeze-dried raspberries with crushed meringue, leaving none of us quite sure which component exactly was the soil.
But enjoy it, we did, and if you want to too then you’d better hurry – there are now less than 10 days to go before Sugar Hits are over for another year!
