Birthday Bake: Pina Colada Cake mk II

I had a topically tropical themed pre-birthday gathering yesterday (kind of the weather to join in the fun) so had another go at the Pina Colada Cake.  The cake was basically the same, except roughly chopped pineapple rings were used instead of crushed pineapple, which made it more of a feature of the texture – and flavour – of the cake.  A couple of shots of Cococabana (more affordable than Malibu) were slowly soaked into the cake while it was still warm from the oven.

Once the cake was cool, it was drizzled all over with glace icing made by mixing icing sugar and pineapple juice, and then topped with desiccated coconut.  The cake was served with slithers of fresh coconut, the remaining pineapple chunks, and good quality vanilla ice-cream.
