Triple Decker Delight

I have my extended family around and we often plan family get-together.  These gatherings are real fun and the best part according to all of us is the food. We women also see it as a platform to exhibit our proven cooking experiments (well.. I mean samples tested on our guinea pigs at home Smile with tongue out). During one of such occasions, I happened to taste this dessert which my Aunty made and I was instantly in love with it. Aunty was generous enough to not just share the recipe but to give me detailed instructions too. This is a three layered dessert with custard, jelly and cream.
