Tropical Island Trifles

Here is my take on the classic trifle. The ingredients are essentially the same, just recomposed to create a little tropical island in the sea. The island is a small jam fancy cupcake, surrounded by a sea of blue jelly, sitting on an ocean floor of custard. I made the palm tree by piping melted chocolate into a tree shape and then scattered green sprinkles on the fronds. Lastly I dusted the island with a teaspoon of crushed sweet biscuits to look like beach sand.
