This cake did not rise because it did not have baking soda and baking powders listed in the recipe. The flavor was good to the taste, but you need rising agents.
The cake turned out just like the picture. Everyone thought it was store bought. And, I got raves from the crowd. I changed the steps just a bit...I put the pineapple mixture on one layer and the cream cheese frosting on the other layer. After frosting the sides I added a little more powdered sugar to the frosting to make it a little more firm. This helped in the piping. It is a special cake for a special event but I would make it again. Thanks!
Using the recipe from Southern Living, I made this for Christmas last year. It was absolutely delicious. It really is a beautiful cake.
Everyone loved it.
Oops! I did not read the recipe properly the first time, but a wonderful recipe. Will make this again.
hands down, the best cake i've ever tasted
What a Wonderful cake. I made it for Easter, everyone loved it. the Pineapple filling I loved, and will use in other recipes. I sub Splenda for the sugar in the filling, and it was Delicious. Thanks for the great recipe.
