Being visually stunning alone is not enough, the most points are awarded for how the dessert eats and tastes - pay attention to all aspects of the eating experience. Tie-breakers always come down to delivery in-mouth.
The dessert must be delivered within the time allowed to avoid penalties.
Keep in mind that competition kitchens never have very good freezer facilities!!
