Berry Dream

Alexandria, who will be turning 8 in March, decided it had been a long time since we had dessert. Don't get me wrong Noel and the kids all love desserts, and although I can sometimes be persuaded I am actually not a sweet tooth. Plus there is the fact that I am always trying to lose weight!

Since buying all the Symply To Good To Be True cookbooks (5 in a set) there has been one dessert that Alex has been longing to try, and that is this one - Berry Dream. Needless to say her wish came true so she helped make, decorated, served and also enjoyed eating this.

Ah nevermind. I saw your comment further down about your camera battery. I always love looking at your finished products. I never cook anything without seeing a picture of how it's supposed to look!

This dessert looks delicious - can you tell me what the equivalent would be to your jelly crystals since I live in the US and haven't heard of jelly crystals (I'm guessing jello??)?
