When pav ready to serve top with whipped cream, layer with chopped jelly, then place cherries on top. Serve dusted with icing sugar (optional)
I find that this tastes better prepared just before serving, not suitable for children due to alcohol - and as it is such a large pav I sometimes serve it in indivdual dishes and keep remaining pav for another time. Serves 10 +
