Fuss-free quick & easy Christmas Black Forest Trifle

Fuss-free quick & easy Christmas Black Forest Trifle

Christmas is one of my favourite days of the year, as it means I get to cook a lot of food for my family. We always split up the courses between my aunts, uncles, cousins and this year we'll be doing the appetisers and one dessert, my favourite courses!
