There are 2 main components of the cake. The sponge layers and the jelly layers. Firstly, build the base by fills a thin spongy cake about an inch thick at the bottom of the pan. Then fills with similar amount of jelly layer and arrange the fruits in the jelly. You have to wait for the jelly to set before you top the 3rd layer with sponge cake. Repeat until you finish all the ingredients. I made 6 layers for this cake using a cake pan size 16cm*7cm for a serving of 8.
