Very lovely cake and easy! Made it for a church gathering and raked in the compliments. The banana and pineapple tastes are gentle and the cream cheese icing is, well, the icing on the cake:) (this review is for the cake part since I have no idea how much cream cheese or icing sugar I used living with European measurements)
