  • You can allow one layer to set in a deep tin with one color and then add another layer of prepared jelly  (of another color) and leave to set.Repeat to get several layers of different colored dessert.
  • The consistency of this pudding is soft but cuttable. You can hold the cut pieces in your hand.
  • If you would like a softer consistency to scoop and eat from a small mould you can add  a half cup more of skimmed milk.
