A friend of mine is having a birthday party and wanted a pineapple cake. Not a pineapple upside-down cake, just a white cake with pineapple filling. She gave me creative license but said no coconut.
I decided to use some white velvet cake I had left over from last month, soak it in an amaretto syrup and then make a crushed pineapple filling.
I was also thinking about using a torched meringue for the outside and dried pineapple ‘flowers’ and roasted almond slices to decorate.
Do you guys think I should do some sort of cream filling instead? OR a pineapple curd? I’m worried the pineapple filling will be too sweet with the meringue, but I dunno…
My brain is so fried after being on vacation for the last week, I can’t decide anything!
I appreciate the input!
