Pineapple Cream Delight
A semi homemade cake for my friend's birthday!!
1 pack of pineapple cake mix ( I used Pillsbury for this one)
1/3 cup oil
1 cup water
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp nutmeg powder
1 can of pineapple chunks (20 oz)
For Whipped Cream Frosting
2 cups heavy cream
6 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Bake two 8-inch round cakes according to instructions; just add the cardamom and nutmeg powders into the batter. This brings out the pineapple flavor in the cake. Cut off the domes after cooling them completely. Using the syrup in the pineapple can, with a pastry brush, brush it over both the cakes slightly to make the cake more moist. Place one cake on the cake board and spread some whipped cream and then put the pineapple chunks on this. If the chunks are too big, cut them into small pieces with a sharp knife. Place the other cake on top of it and frost the whole cake with whipped cream. Decorate with the pineapple chunks.
For preparing the whipped cream frosting, beat the chilled heavy cream, sugar and vanilla on medium speed till if forms into stiff peaks. (Make sure the bowl which you are preparing the cream in and the blades are frozen for half an before you start making the cream).
