Serves 4 or 5. This is a great standby dessert we made one version with fresh pineapple and another with tinned peaches with Tiptree Spiced Rum Liqueur. If you can find cocktail cherries with Maraschino with stalks that will add height to this layered dessert. Recipe by Sally Carpenter for Wilkin & Sons Ltd.

  8. Decorate with toasted almonds and slices of pineapple or peaches, garnish with cherries or a peeled clementine.
  9. Serve with any remaining fruit and juice in separate dish – you can add a splash of Spiced Rum Liqueur.
  10. This dessert can be chilled but it is best served at room temperature.
