Top Review by Lee from New Mexico

As I looked for a Pina Colada cake I wondered why no one was using a pineapple cake mix to start with. I was coming to the end of my search and trying to formulate a recipe in my mind using what I had found and a pineapple cake mix when there you were, I don't know about anybody else, but, it just seems like common sense to start out with predominant ingredient to begin with. a wonderful cake, thank you so much for sharing, have added to my "Keeper" file....Lydia
