Using a large metal spoon, gently fold in half the flour and half the milk. Repeat with remaining flour and milk.

Spoon mixture into patty pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool cakes on a wire rack.

Stir jelly and boiling water together in a bowl until crystals are dissolved. Stir in cold water.

Refrigerate for 1 hour or until cold and slightly thick.

Drain excess jelly. Toss cakes in coconut until well coated. Place onto a lined tray and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set.

Cut a circle of cake from the top of each cake. Pipe whipped cream onto the cake and sit cake top back on. Plate up and serve. Enjoy!
