- Put the gelatin sheets into a bowl of cold water and leave until softened. Stir the jelly crystals into 300ml of boiling water and set aside.
- In a small bowl add the red wine Ginger, Cinnamon, Orange and Clove Spice Drops® and sugar. Mix until the sugar dissolves. Squeeze the excess water out of the gelatin sheets and put the sheets into a large bowl.
- Add the wine mixture on to the gelatin sheets then add the jelly mixture, stir well and leave to cool.
- Arrange the mixed berries and the cake pieces into a large glass serving bowl and pour in enough of the cooled jelly mixture to cover about two-thirds of the bowl, leaving room for the custard and fromage frais.
- Chill for at least five hours or overnight, so that the jelly sets well.
- In a bowl mix the Cardamom Spice Drops® into the custard and stir well. Spoon the custard over the set jelly, then whisk together the fromage frais and Vanilla Spice Drops® and spoon on top of the custard layer.
- Scatter the edible decorations on top, before serving, to give it a festive touch.
