 Have you got a recipe for Low Cal English Trifle?  Just in case--- 
  (Takes up to two days to prepare properly) 
  Break angel cake in medium size pieces, spread each with small amount
 of Raspberry Jam, arrange in straight sided glass bowl.  Pour over the
 sherry and weight down lightly with saucer and cover with plastic wrap,
 set aside for a few hours.  After sherry has been absorbed, mix Jello
 according to directions, do not use ice.  Pour over cake and sherry in
 the bowl. Cover and place in refrigerator for several hours or overnight
 until jello is set.  Before serving, prepare Vanilla Pudding mix and
 pour over top of jello, using a knife to slide down sides of bowl to
 allow some of the pudding to go down sides.  Cover and chill again.
 Garnish with cherries and mint, or use some of the candied holiday
 fruits to decorate top of bowl. When serving, be sure to slide spoon to
 the bottom of the bowl for each serving, not only for the colors of the
 different layers, but to be sure each serving gets the flavor of the
 sherry. Top with a small dollop of Cool Whip Lite.
 
  If you're not watching sugar content or calories, the same recipe can
 be made with regular jam, regular jello and regular pudding mix.
 Looks best in a straight sided glass bowl.  This has been a family
 favorite for Christmas since my childhood.
