This trifle is wonderful for Boxing Day as the Orange Tea Cake can be baked three days ahead and kept in the refrigerator. Use a portion of the cake for the trifle and keep the remainder for unexpected guests. The Orange Cake is healthy and nutritious, the Fruit Tea Jelly is using natural ingredients and it's sugar free. Perfect for everyone.
