For the jelly, soak gelatine sheets in cold or iced water. Once soft squeeze out excess water. Heat 200ml cosmopolitan cocktail mix and add the gelatine to dissolve. Add the remaining 400ml of cocktail mix with 150ml water. Allow to cool.
Line the inside edge of the base of the trifle dish with sliced strawberries. Gently pour in the jelly mix and add chopped strawberries to the jelly mix. Allow to firm in the fridge.
Combine 1 punnet raspberries, a handful of blueberries and a packet of frozen mixed berries and add ¾ of the jar of the red currant jam. Mix together and set aside.
For the white chocolate cream bring the milk to the boil with the vanilla bean. In a bowl combine the egg yolks, sugar, and cornflour. Gently pour over the hot milk and whisk. Remove the vanilla bean. Pour back into the saucepan and cook over low heat until the mixture thickens. Add the white chocolate and whisk until it has melted. Pour into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap or freezer film directly onto the surface so that a skin does not form. Allow to cool. When cool whisk lightly & gently fold in 1/3 of the softly whipped cream to combine then add the remaining cream. Cover and set aside in the fridge.
Cut the jam rolls into 8mm-1cm rounds and place a layer laying flat on the jelly. Gently spoon over about an inch of cream mix. Place a layer of jam roll slices standing up along the inside edge of the bowl resting on the pastry cream. Line the centre with jam rolls laying flat. You will have created a shallow hole. Spoon in the mixed berries, to the top of the layer of jam rolls. Place a fresh raspberry on the jam rolls on the inside of the trifle bowl and then fill with white chocolate cream. Chill and allow to firm up in the fridge before decorating with fresh berries and white chocolate curls.
