To make my trifle, you can use homemade advocaat, pound cake and marmalade (see links below), or simple buy good quality store-bought versions.
I've topped my trifle with shards of bitter chocolate, but it's also good with crumbled Dutch cookies like crisp bitterkoekjes or stroopwafels, which add crunch and chewyness. Alternatively, cut the orange peel into thin strips using a zester and use that to decorate the desserts.
