2. Bring the orange juice to the boil with the caster sugar, then add the softened gelatine leaves or gelatine.
3. Stir until the gelatine has completely melted.
4. Allow to cool a little, then add the Grand Marnier if using.
5. Put a small layer of jelly into a terrine lined with cling wrap - covered the bottom.
6. Put this to set in the fridge for 20 minutes.
