Season's Eatings:Joelle's #JollyJelly Festive Trifle

A note from Joelle... 
Hi guys!
The folks at Hartley's sent me some of their new Black Cherry jelly and challenged me to make a festive trifle!
I had never actually made a trifle before today, but you know me, I love a challenge! So here's what I made...
#JollyJelly Festive Trifle Challenge
You will need:
 - Hartley's Black Cherry Jelly - wonderfully festive and tastes amazing in a trifle (and on it's own... I might have made some vodka jellies with it as well!)
 - Custard
 - Trifle Sponges
 - Gingersnap biscuits (optional)
 - Fresh Raspberries 
 - Hartley's Jam (strawberry or raspberry)
 - Glace Cherries
 - Grated Dark chocolate - chocolate and cherries go so well together!

Method
 - Read the packet instructions to make the jelly
 - For the Syrup: 300g fresh raspberries (save a few for decoration!) and add half a pot of Hartley's Jam into a saucepan
- Cook on a medium heat for 5-10 mins before removing from the heat and leaving on the side to cool right down
 - For the custard: I used instant custard powder, nutmeg, semi-skimmed milk, 2 tbsp caster sugar and vanilla extract.
 - Whisk all the ingredients up in a saucepan until a smooth paste and then whack up the heat and continue to stir and add more milk when it gets thick
 - when smooth and a good thickness, leave to cool, but carry on stirring so it doesn't get that weird skin on the top`

At the base: blitzed gingersnap biscuit crumbs and trifle sponges (ripped up)
