  3. Add the ice cold water bit by bit until your dough comes together.

  5. Set aside to cool while you work on the fillings.

  2. On a medium heat whisk until the sugar and agar have dissolved.
  3. Once boiling, take off the heat and stir in the white chocolate until combined.

  Rose Layer:
  1. In a pan, whisk together the water, rose syrup, Rose Spice Drops, agar powder and heat on a medium heat until the agar dissolves.
  2. Leave to cool slightly and add the gold glitter and pour into the pastry case on top of the cardamom layer.
  3. Sprinkle on the rose petals and leave to set.
  Meringue Layer:
  1. Measure out 75ml of Oggs aquafaba and start whipping on a medium setting using a stand mixer.
  2. Once soft peaks begin to form, add the cream of tartar and whip for a further minute.

  4. Pipe the meringue on the pie and blowtorch to get a charred effect.
  5. Adorn with crushed apple powder by crushing the apple crisps and sprinkling on top.
