Pineapple Cake

I made this cake for a special friend's surprise birthday party..I was glad that everybody loved it so much and relished on it!! I just found this recipe on some site on the internet and tried it out.

2 large eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple with juice (Use about 3/4 quantity for cake and leave 1/4 quantity for filling)

Combine eggs and sugar and beat it till fluffy; add remaining ingredients including 3/4 of the can of crushed pineapple with juice and mix well. Bake in 9 X 2 inch heart shaped cake pan (2 cakes) and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees F or till the toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Level both the cakes by cutting out the domes. Take one cake with and spread the whipped cream on top of it. Then put the remaining 1/4 quantity of the pineapple along with its juice over the cream. Place the other cake upside down on this. Frost the whole cake with white whipped cream. Then decorate it with pineapple slices and cherries on top of it.
