Triple-layer 7Up Cake, Pineapple Buttercream with Pineapple Jam filling, Pineapple Buttercream frosting and Coconut
This is a redo of the entertaining My Cake Looks Like a Hat post. The feedback on that cake was good...less lime filling and more pineapple. Ok, I can do that.
Putting this cake together was super quick! After a layer of buttercream, I added a very thin layer of pineapple jam. What a sweet treat and a perfect compliment to the flavor profile.
This cake was made for a get together with friends. We met on the Hauptstrasse and enjoyed the lovely cool breeze of a summer evening. I was surprised by the many folks who gawked at the cake, stopped to take a picture, or who came up and said something to us.
I don't know why I chose orange... that's not the color of pineapple or lemon or lime. Maybe that's why I chose it! Color was necessary and it sounded fun. I really like the look of this cake and I look forward to using it again.
Also, when I started taking the photographs, I couldn't decide on the white or the orange tablecloth.
|I love the orange tablecloth...the cake looks like it's on fire!!|
A good evening with friends, wonderful conversation, a beautiful setting, and my life partner. It's a great life.
