Non-alcoholic trifle safe for people with various allergies.
If you have a family member with serious allergies, they often miss out on party food. With careful choice of ingredients they can be included without having to have something different from everyone else.
Cut swiss roll into 1 cm slices and line the bowl with them - you can make quite nice patterns. base and sides of the bowl should be covered to within 1 cm (or less) of the top.
Mix the first jelly as per instructions in a jug - usually a smaller volume of boiling water first and top up with cold. I use ice cubes in the cold water.
Carefully pour the jelly so that it soaks into the swiss roll slices. Pouring on the top edge of the side slices helps.
Place in fridge to set.
When set add the drained can of fruit salad, smooth out.
Mix and pour in the next coloured jelly - the fruit juice can be used as part of the cold water but slightly reduce the volume - syrup may make it hard to set (and too sweet)
Place in fridge to set
Depending on bowl size/shape, there may be room for another layer of jelly.
Arrange mandarin orange segments in concentric circles on the top jelly surface.
Serve alone or with a suitable (safe) icecream.
A more adult variation uses lime, lemon and raspberry jellies with lychees in the middle and grapefruit segments on top - but check, because grapefruit interacts with some medications.
