My mum loves this classic dessert trifle, so I made this one for her. It is a fun dish to prepare for any special occasions and children will enjoy helping out. Be sure to prepare this in a deep glass bowl so that everyone can admire the colored layers of sweetness at the end. This works very well without the jelly or the sherry (fortified wine) and you can use different fruit as well if you wish. I used Swiss Jam Roll, but any sponge cake works for this recipe.

1 packet jelly (optional)

Peaches go in first

This step is optional - Pour in the sherry (fortified wine) and allow an hour for the flavors to penetrate the peaches.
This step is also optional, but a must for any jelly lovers out there - Pour prepared jelly on top of the peaches.

Jelly on top of the peaches

Slice the Swiss jam roll and gently place these slices into the jelly.

Place the Swiss roll into the jelly

Allow the layers to set in the fridge for a few hours.

Then serve cooled with ice cream or cream. Enjoy eating your work of edible art.
