    MW Chocolate Cake & Trifle Pudding (2)

    For a trifle cake, the cake is well soaked in a fruit juice or sugar syrup. Here, I used orange juice. When completely absorbed, spread the top with either
    Sweetened Cream
    Or
    Thick, sweetened custard.
    I decorated with chocolate curls. Here, sky is the limit for your imagination!:)
