1 Dessert Platter - Roka Aldwych

"Platter" is too modest a word for the glorious mountain of delectable morsels piled high on an ice-laden dish. Sharing is definitely required, and even a team of two would be hard-pressed to consume the lot. From exotic fruits and sorbets, to the more adventurous hokkaido cheesecake with robata nashi pear, you’re in for an absolute treat.

2 DIY S’mores- Flesh & Buns

Few can resist this mouth-watering combination of marshmallow, chocolate and biscuit - especially when you get to be in charge of ratios. This new take on an old classic brings together hunks of pillowy passionfruit marshmallow to be toasted over a tabletop grill and squished between slices of almond chocolate and crisp graham crackers. We want s’more!

3 Chocolate Glory- Bob Bob Ricard

You’re going to want to have your Boomerang app set to roll with this one. Trust Bob Bob Ricard to bring a little drama to the table, and in this case it comes in the form of golden chocolate orb. A pot of melted hot chocolate is generously poured over until the orb yields, revealing oozing chunks of brownie, chocolate mousse, berries, and a passionfruit jelly.

4 Tipsy Cake- Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

Heston loves to do things a bit differently, and this special dessert is a source of joy for non-chocolate lovers. Tipsy Cake’s special ingredient is a spit roast pineapple - you’ll be served a generous strip of rich, sticky pineapple alongside a caramelised brioche cake. Haute tip: the dish is served steaming hot and made to order, so opt in with your starter.

5 Bubblewrap Waffles

You’ll find this shop on Wardour Street in Soho, likely flooded by dessert fanatics. Giant fluffy waffles are formed into a cone shape and filled with a world of delicious gelato, sauces and every topping imagineable. The egg waffles themselves come in three flavours; plain, cocoa and matcha. This customizable treat is a favourite in Hong Kong and is killing the dessert scene in London. One bite into this cone of bliss, and you'll understand why.
