Riding the Sugar Overload roller coaster...

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.

that's all.

Oh, and if anyone wants the recipe for the coconut-mango trifle... let me know.
