I thought we were about due for some more cake. But I haven't been baking anything special lately, so here is one I should have posted ages ago, but never seemed to have gotten around to it.
This was for my big sisters' birthday. She had been craving a sponge cake with fresh cream and pineapple. Not easy coming up with a funky and modern design when it comes to decorating with fresh cream and fruit! I wanted something different to the traditional swirls etc. This is what I came up with. The middle is also filled with pineapple and cream, and the succulent flower on top is from my garden. First time I've used fresh flowers on a cake! I really liked the effect of it... I think it added to the "pineapple" theme a little bit. You know... spiky green leaves and such...
I have to say, this cake was delish :)
