Pina Colada Cake

First layer with whipped cream and drained crushed pineapple.
I also brushed some cream of coconut(also added to cake) on the top of both layers.

Little helper!

This cake is full of love!
Second layer also brushed with cream of coconut.

Final product with homemade cream cheese frosting and coconutflakes.

This was the only candle I could find. I know 50 years from now someone
will find the photo and think it is of Isha's 3rd birthday.


This cake was originally called Cream of Coconut Cake. But after some of my own additions, I gave it a new name. I made this cake for Roque's birthday. I wanted to make something I hadn't made before that he would enjoy. Something different with a little island feel to it. Not a regular, "satisfies the kids" cake. Something more sophisticated. I really wanted to impress and dazzle him with my culinary skills.
My hubby was very impressed and can't wait for his birthday next year to have it again. Although it was a very yummy cake.
