Slideshow SLIDESHOW: Share Your Sweets: Latin American Desserts

Cinco de Mayo might be over, but the fiesta continues in your kitchens. From coconut-y trembleque to a crowned tres leche cake and gooey alfajores, here are 8 desserts inspired by Latin America.

Next week, we're looking for whole wheat sweets. Do you use whole wheat flour in your chocolate chip cookies? Add it to muffins or bake it up into an awesome, nutty cake? Tell us why your whole wheat treat rocks, shoot us a photo (along with a link to the recipe!) and we'll include it in next week's roundup. Be sure to send it in no later than Tuesday, May 15th so we can include it in next Thursday's Share Your Sweets on May 17th.

If you're new to Share Your Sweets, take a peep at the rules here. A few notes: we can only take one submission per person, so pick your favorite (or the most recent shot) and send it in. Also, Share Your Sweets is just for the folks at home; no pros or companies! If you want to really impress us, crop your photo so it's 610 pixels wide and 458 pixels tall.
