Marja’s Jelly cake

Marja and her family lived across Kusabs Road, in Rotorua, from us when Dianne was a baby and we shared many occasions with them.  This slice was a favourite at childrens parties and also adult afternoon teas.  I have even served it as a desert with some fresh fruit and whipped cream.
