“I got this recipe from a Cross Stitch book and decided to post it here to keep it before I lose it amongst my other books. I think there is something similar to this on the web site, so hope I can be forgiven. It had a really strange name for the dessert "Sunset on a Billowy Sea." My son suggested calling it Traffic Light Dessert - the colours are almost right! Best made a day ahead and cook time, is the approximate time it takes to set.”
