Christmas Jelly Cake

By Rumblingtummy @RumblingTummi
Last year, just before Christmas, my mom had a bad fall and I really had no mood to do anything fancy. 
I remembered I brought this cake to a gathering and had received good review on this Christmas Jelly Cake.  Though the process is long, this recipe gives you time to do things in between.
Though the steps seem never ending but it is not as intimidating as you think.  In fact, it is rather easy.
I did a few tries and had improved on the texture to our preference as well as the brand of milk we used.
