Broken Glass Torte

I recently purchased a Tupperware Jel-O-Ring and have been digging up those recipes from the 70's which I then rebirth in a modern way. My Nana recently made this one, but not in a Jel-O-Ring and I recognised it from my childhood. And you know what it is still just as good!

Ingredients

Base
1 Packet Nice biscuits, crushed
125gm Butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar

Filling
3 packets of jelly, red, yellow and green
3 cups boiling water
1 tbsp gelatin
1/4 cup water
1 cup hot pineapple juice
600ml Cream
1/2 cup Castor Sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Method

Mix all the base ingredients together and press into the bottom of the Jel-O-Ring.
Dissolve each jelly in a cup of boiling water. Set aside in separate containers to set. When set cut into 1cm cubes.
Soften gelatin in the water, then dissolve in the pineapple juice and let cool
Whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla
Mix juice mixture into cream when cool and then carefully fold in the jelly. Try to keep the cubes in shape. Pour into the Shell and refrigerate until set, about 6-9 hours. To serve turn it out of the Jel-O-Ring into a plate and slice.
