So today was my nephew's birthday party, he turned 1! He's such a cutie! And the Food! I didn't make a mistake there... Food deserves a capital "F". So fab!! She had quite the spread! Bbq'd shrimp, pork skewers, short ribs, wings, spinach... loads of food. Brownies, tuxedo cake, cotton candy and the dessert that I made. It's become a bit of a thing. Last year, for her eldest son's, Mateo, birthday, I made a traditional tiramisu trifle, sans the custard and made a giant coconut chocolate cupcake. So this year, for Micah's shin-dig, I made a coconut-mango trifle. Layers of coconut cake, slices of fresh mangoes, and coconut pastry cream with whipped cream and toasted coconut on top. It was jammin! Not too sweet and fresh. I love the coconut-mango combo.
Needless to say, I ate too much and now I'm suffering from a sugar headache.
Oh, and if anyone wants the recipe for the coconut-mango trifle... let me know.
