As if mixing Gingernut biscuits, marshmallows, Maltesers, Digestives and cherries wasn’t cuckoo enough, some brilliant loony went one step further and threw edible glitter into the mix as well. K-razy.

Easy like sundae morning

A twist on the classic knickerbocker glory, this version uses ginger nut biscuits, banana, dulce de leche sauce and mascarpone for a rich after-dinner treat. A heart attack in a glass, if you like. Yikes!
