Cake with Jelly inside and Vanilla whipped cream on top - it hits all the notes!

5 - Pour the batter mixture into a greased 13"x9" or 33cm x 23cm pan, spread it around to be as even as you can.

Hints for 2 different cake texture options
• If you want a jelly texture do not add jelly until cake is fully chilled
• If you want the jelly to flavour the cake but not be gelatinous, add jelly mixture to cake while room temp/warm

Method to make the Jelly ... (recipe continues) 
8 - Make jelly liquid according to the instructions on the box. To make any of the 11 different flavours of Lite Jellies that we sell, tip 2 x 9gm sachets into a heat proof container. Pour 400ml boiling water and 200ml cold water, and stir to dissolve.
9 - Using the round end of a wooden spoon, or chopsticks, poke holes throughout the whole cake 2.5cm apart
10 - Pour the made up jelly mixture over the cake so the liquid fills the holes and some sits above the level of the cake. Place into the fridge while whipping the cream.

Method to make the Whipped Cream ... (recipe continues)
11 - Into a cold bowl, place all the whipped cream ingredients and mix until stiff peaks form.
12 - Once the jelly is set, top the cake with whipped cream, smoothing the surface. 
13 - Chill to set the cake for 15 minutes, and slice to serve.
