Merry Christmas to you all and here’s a Merry Christmas Trifle Recipe to boot!

I was asked to provide a Christmas Trifle recipe for a work colleague so I was only to happy to oblige. This is more of an assembly of ingredients rather than a cooking recipe but if you want to make your own custard or jam rather than shop bought then feel free.
