1 Jelly Roll (or a pound cake)
1 pkg Red JelloŽ - cherry, raspberry or strawberry
1/2 to 3/4 cup sherry, optional (substitute water or fruit juice)
Custard Powder to give you about 2-3 cups custard when made up with milk, sugar
Fruit, Canned fruit cocktail and/or peach slices
Heavy Cream (Whipping Cream)

Use a clear glass bowl, place cut jelly roll slices on bottom and sides of bowl.

Make up Jello, using 1 cup of boiling water to dissolve and 1/2 -3/4 cups of sherry. Make up custard according to direction on package.

Drizzle jelly roll slices in bowl, with Jello/sherry mixture. Cover with a layer of fruit, then a layer of custard, continue until bowl is full, drizzling jelly roll with Jello mixture on each layer. Custard layer should be on top. Can be assembled night before - gives flavours a chance to mellow. Whip cream and put on top of custard, and serve extra cream on the side.
