Zuppa Inglese (English Trifle)

This Italian style English trifle is beautiful to look at and delicious to eat with the addition of citrus flavours to lift and enhance the chocolate and cream. Make and serve it in a large bowl or in individual glasses. This trifle will benefit from being made ahead, allowing time for the flavours to intensify!
