Yes, you can make vegan trifle. The jelly is set with agar-agar, so do pay attention to how many grams of agar powder you put in, otherwise it sets as solid as a rock, which isn’t what you want in a jelly. There is also a split between those who think the jelly should be on top and others who believe the jelly should be the bottom layer. One could write a PhD thesis on this kind of thing.

Sour cherries aren’t easy to get hold of, but you can buy them canned, in a jar, or frozen from Middle Eastern suppliers and online.

As you assemble, make sure the coils of jelly roll can be seen through the sides of the glass bowl. This should be a billowing “froufrou” dessert in red and white.

You will need a jelly roll pan, or a baking sheet plus nonstick baking parchment.

Obviously the jelly roll and the jelly can also be served as separate desserts.
