Boil the water, add jelly crystals, stir and dissolve well. Put half the mixture in the fill to chill. When thickened but not set, beat with a spoon and pour on to the layer of cake in the tin.

Sprinkle a third of the biscuits crumbs on it. Place the centre layer of cake on top.

Put in the chiller for jelly to set. Also place remaining jelly mixture in freezer to thicken save 1 tbsp for top. Repeat as for above. Cover with top layer of cake. Pour the remaining jelly (1 tbsp) over it, spread. Sprinkle remain crumbs, decorated with chopped strawberries. Chill for the topmost layer to set.
