What a fun day to be making a cake with tropical fruit!! The 12 inches did stop me from going to the store to get the ingredients for the glaze, so we ate it without.
When explaining to my friend that I was afraid of cutting a pineapple's core, she explained that she had the perfect tool for me to borrow! Look at this, a tool that cores and slices pineapple.
Look at this beauty. Now what could I do with that?
I used my mini bundt pan.
The cakes came out looking beautiful.
My husband and I had a late night snack of chicken salad because I didn't want to waste the beauty that is the pineapple.
JT watching my little beauties until they cooled. Although, I did like them warm best..mmmm.
My children did not care for the pineapple cake. I prefer my cornbread pineapple cake-southern style. I did have a huge epiphany with this cake. I have been on a cake quest for some time now. Trying to find "the cake". I have come to the conclusion that when it comes to eating, I do not care for cake. I am a pie, pudding, and custard kind of gal.
