Jelly Slices take a bit of time to assemble but are worth it for the delicious end result. Slices are one of the most popular styles of Australian sweets. Jelly Slices, Caramel Slices and Peppermint Slices are often available at bakeries.
This slice is easy to modify. You can use different colours of jelly, or create layers. Red and green, for example, would be festive for Christmas.
