Classic desserts, modern twists

When it comes to dessert, sometimes we like a little bit of nostalgia. A flip through any cookbook from the early or mid-20th century will reveal a bevy of retro desserts from tiramisu to trifle. 

While some of these sweet treats have been left in the dust, there is a sweeping global trend leading the charge of retro revival.
