My dear friend Chris Packard’s youngest son got married today! She needed help with a few desserts for the luncheon so I decided to make this coconut tres leches cake trifle. 🙂
I’ll confess…I hadn’t ever made it before. I actually do that a lot! LOL! I like living on the edge. Haha! I just find recipes that sound good and whip them up and cross my fingers they turn out as good as they sound. 😛
This dessert did NOT disappoint!
It was everything you could dream of and more. The toasted coconut really put it over the top for me. I LOVE coconut!
I was a little worried about how I was going to transport it though. Trifle dishes aren’t the most stable serving dishes in moving car…LOL!!!
A few boxes of mac n’ cheese and a basket did the trick though!!! I would have cried if it would have dumped on the way there! Thank goodness it arrived all in tact! 😀
The luncheon was beautiful and the trifle was a huge hit! Everyone now wants the recipe. I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who thought it was delicious!
Chris also needed help decorating the Stake Center and my friend Liz and I were in charge of the display as everyone walked into the foyer. I think it turned out so pretty! 🙂 I was there from 8:30am until 2:30pm. I was also helping in the kitchen chopping, washing, mixing, and setting out food. Then we had to clean up before we left. It was a long day but it was so much fun.
Congratulations Packard family!!!
