Coconut, Pineapple, Rum Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Rita1652

Sweet tooth and Pina Colada lovers this is for YOU!!!!! Optional for the winter parties! You can bake this in 2 medium metal bowls, (using foil to keep stable while baking) to form a snow ball when put together. You just need to slice a piece off the bottom (round part) so it can sit stable and frost with cream top with other half and frost with rest. Cover with coconut flakes.

This was tasty but I don't know if it was worth the mess! The filling (frosting) too runny looks like we'll be eating pudding instead. Does have good flavor!
