85g packet mango flavored jelly crystals
600ml thickened cream
2 tablespoons caster sugar

Cut jam rolls into four even slices. Place half the jam rollettes over base and around side of serving bowl(10 cup capacity). Brush with half the liqueur.

Make raspberry jelly according to packet instructions. Cool to room temperature. Pour over jam rollettes in serving bowl. Refrigerate until set. Repeat layering with orange and mange jellies, refrigerating between layers until set.

Beat cream and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until firm peaks form. Gently fold half the cream into custard in a large bowl. Pour over set jelly.

Arrange remaining jam rollettes over custard mixture and brush with remaining liqueur. Drizzle with passionfruit pulp. Top with remaining whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
