  4. Premix (C) and melt it over a hot water bath
  5. Add (B), mix (C) into (A) then blend all ingredients in (A), (B) and (C) together
  6. Add (D) and (E) and mix well
  7. Add (F) til evenly blended
  8. Cut the sponge cake into 2 horizontal layers
  9. use the above filling to sandwich the cake layer
  10. Cover the whole cake with a thin layer of whipped cream
  11. Arrange the peach slices on top

  13. Glaze the peaches by brushing instant jelly topping glaze onto them. Serve.

The yogurt mixture was so yummy...

Hi, javapot, I have most of AG & WK's cook books, gotta make full use in order to get the books worth its value, :p

Yeah, BIL likes making fancy jelly desserts whenever there was an occasion.
