Luckily, all you need is a fillable ornament ball which you can find at craft shops to make your sphere, and luster dust from baking stores to get that Insta-worthy metallic sheen. Then it’s your choice of whatever you want inside – be it brownie, ice-cream or your favourite cake.

Pop this one on the list for the next time you need an impressive dinner party dessert.
