There appears to have been somewhat of a "trifle revival" taking place this year. Magazines, foodie programs and instagram all seem to be flooded with images of this retro dessert.

Since we're being quite decadent anyway, let's make it a triple decker too. Go big or go home! I love cake. I love icing. I love condensed milk. But it's the crunchy Milo sprinkles on the outside that really do it for me. Most South African's grew up drinking Milo (it's Australian, not South African...
