This looks absolutely fabulous and worthy of 5 stars. Just finished watching "The Best Thing I Ever Ate-Thankful" on the Food Network, and this was Brit Robert Irvine's pick. It looked so great that I had to look for the recipe on FN's website, but the exact recipe was not there. So here I am and you've got just the one I wanted. I plan to make this (with zhangbo's changes) for Christmas in place of my usual trifle. Thanks for sharing.

Well, I finally made this cake (for my birthday tomorrow) after wanting to attempt it for a very long time. I have not tasted it yet, but it looks very promising. I took the liberty of placing some fresh raspberries on top of the jam along with the cream in the middle. Will post more photos after the cake is cut.

The cake photo does look very tempting, and I bet you will love the taste of this cake. Look forward to seeing the slices, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Have a good one :)
