Trifle

Ingredients
1 premade sponge
2 cups of vanilla custard
2 packets jelly crystals
2 cups of boiling water
1 tin of peaches
2 cups of cream
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp icing sugar (powdered sugar)

Method
  1. Cut sponge to fit the bowl you are using. Cut sponge so that it is 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Slice peach slices into thin bits, lengthwise, and lay across sponge.
  3. Place another layer of sponge atop this then another layer of peaches.
  4. Combine jelly crystals and boiling water and stir until crystals are dissolved.
  5. Pour carefully over sponge and peaches.
  6. Allow to set in the fridge (at least an hour).
  7. Once jelly is set, pour over custard and place back in the fridge.
  8. In a new bowl, whip cream, icing sugar and vanilla until it makes firm peaks.
  9. Using a piping bag, pipe cream onto the top of the custard. (Note : A piping bag makes it easier to apply)
  10. Serve with fresh fruits, or by itself. Enjoy.
