Should you wish to be particularly cunning, Dartington Dairy will be at the festival selling their scrumptious goat ice-cream...)
Bring your sweet creation to the to the festival's herbal tea stall on Vire Island along with a list on the ingredients. We'll be judging (& scoffing) around 3.30pm so dishes will need to be ok not refrigerated for an hour or two.
There will be a prize for the winner and runners up will receive a warm glow of satisfaction and a big thank you from the festival team.
