Recipe by Linda in South Afri

This recipe is VERY tasty and elegant and takes no baking!(unless you have to bake the Swiss Roll yourself) It looks divine in a clear glass bowl where one can see the layers.I found it in a South African Magazine .If you don't like the Liquer in the recipe you can make it without it still tastes divine. ..of course it is better with the liquer!
