Light trifle cheesecake

I cooked this cheesecake recipe for my mum's birthday. Using the sponge finger biscuits for the base was easy and worked surprisingly well. I only used about 1/4 of the jelly mix in the cheesecake, as I felt it needed more for the topping. I also used light cream cheese.

One tip: the recipe recommends passionfruit jelly, but I think the flavour (and more specifically the colour) should depend entirely on the fruit you use to top the cake. I chose purple plums and blueberries, and the orange-coloured jelly clashed terribly! I mixed up some extra strawberry jelly and used it as an extra layer on top, which made it look much better.
