You can use pineapple instead of apple. You will need 1 big pineapple for this recipe.
I used gala apples for this recipe.
Instead of Whipping Cream, you can use regular Amul cream too.
I used a pastry bag while layering the custard.
You can use Nice biscuits/digestives instead of Goodday biscuits. 
The dessert keeps well in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
