Valentine's Day trifle for 2

Today I have the pleasure of guest posting for my friend Becca on her blog It's Yummi. Becca is a real trained chef (unlike myself who just likes to cook), so it's an honor for her to like my cooking and welcome me to her blog.

Valentines Day is just around the corner and what is more romantic than sharing dessert after a lovely meal. My recipe today is for a trifle for 2. Layers of sponge cake, fruit, cream and chocolate. Wow your partner with this inviting dessert, because love is in the air. 

If you would like to get the recipe for this lovely dessert head over to It's Yummi.
