Pass through a sieve to remove the seeds and add gelatin. Lay out the rest of raspberries on a deep baking dish lined with glad wrap and pour jelly over the raspberries. Leave in freezer for one hour to set quickly, or leave in fridge for 3 - 4 hours

3. Sorbet

Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until texture is smooth. Put in freezer to set.

4. Ganache

Heat cream until almost boiling and remove from heat. Add broken up chocolate. Leave for 4 minutes. Stir together and once combined, put in fridge to cool.

5. Almond Shard

Melt sugar in pot with water over medium - high heat until sugar is golden. Add in almonds and quickly pour onto a tray lined with baking paper. Leave until sugar has hardened. Blitz praline into crumbs and shape however you would like on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Put in oven for 2 minutes for sugar to melt and harden into desired shape. Leave to set and carefully remove from baking paper.

6. Chocolate soil

Melt sugar in a pot with water over a medium - high heat until it reaches 130 degrees. While sugar is heating, cut chocolate into little pieces, no bigger than a fingernail. When sugar reaches temperature, add in chocolate and whisk really quickly and it will form the soil.
