      Right American Trifle this is! Very yummy, but mine did not go as straihgt forward as one would imagine. I used Jello crystals with raspberry flavor and the package size is 85g, used 2 of them. For the custard I used the type you make with milk and custard powder, the english way. The result was not pink but very bright neon red. Also the raspberry flavor was overpowering the custard flavor. Seems like my home concoction custrd wasn't quite up to it. Also, when I poured the still liquid jelly on top of the sponge slices, they sucked all that red liquid in them and started floating in the liquid. I think next time it would be good idea to let the jelly set a little before pouring it on the sponge slices. In the end it all tasted great though, regardles of the looks.

      Extremely easy to make and looks really pretty. Would be great for a little girls birthday party with the middle hollowed out and a Barbie Doll sitting in the middle with the cake surrounding her looking like a dress! Thanks for sharing Catherine!

      I also made this for christmas and it was so easy and fast to make with ingredients I like so I knew it would turn out great. The kids and adults loved it and was as pretty as the picture. My girl loved the pink colour! Thanks for a great easy recipe!
