- Prepare the cake: Poke holes all over the tops of the 2 cake layers using a toothpick. Brush the cakes with the pineapple juice, letting it soak into the holes; set aside.
- Make the filling: Bring the dried pineapple, pineapple juice, cream of coconut and 1/2 cup water to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the dried pineapple is soft and the liquid is reduced to a thick syrup, about 20 minutes. Let cool, then mash with a potato masher to make a chunky jam.
- Make the frosting: Beat the butter and salt in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until smooth and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Gradually beat in the confectioners' sugar until smooth. Add the cream of coconut, increase the mixer speed to medium high and beat until thick, 2 to 3 more minutes. Assemble the cake: Place 1 cake layer on a platter; spread the pineapple filling on top, stopping about 1/2 inch from the edge. Top with the second cake layer and press down gently. Cover the whole cake with the coconut frosting. Top with the toasted coconut and dried pineapple.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter two 9-inch-round cake pans and line the bottoms with parchment paper; butter the parchment and dust the pans with flour, tapping out the excess.
- Whisk 3 cups flour, the baking powder and salt in a bowl until combined. Beat 2 sticks butter and the sugar in a large bowl with a mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Reduce the mixer speed to medium; beat in the eggs, one at a time, scraping down the bowl as needed. Beat in the vanilla. (The mixture may look separated at this point.)
- Mix 1/2 cup water with the cream in a liquid measuring cup or bowl. Beat the flour mixture into the butter mixture in 3 batches, alternating with the cream mixture, beginning and ending with flour, until just smooth.
- Divide the batter between the prepared pans. Bake until the cakes are lightly golden on top and the centers spring back when pressed, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer to racks and let cool 10 minutes, then run a knife around the edge of the pans and turn the cakes out onto the racks to cool completely. Remove the parchment. Trim the tops of the cakes with a long serrated knife to make them level, if desired.

PINA COLADA PINEAPPLE CAKES
- To make yellow pieces:.
- Place the yellow candy melts into a medium, heatproof bowl.
- Fill a small pot of water with a 2-inch depth of water. Set over a low heat with the bowl of yellow candy melts on top. Stir until the yellow candy melts have melted and are smooth. Remove from the heat.
- Drop a small dollop (about 1/4 to 1/8 tsp) of the melted candy melt onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using a small, offset spatula make a brushstroke motion over the dollop of candy melt to spread it out into a thin oval.
- Repeat this with all of the melted yellow candy melts - you may need to re-melt it in the bowl if it's starting to set.
- Chill for 15-20 minutes until set.
- To make green leaf crown top:.
- Place the green candy melts into a small, heatproof bowl.
- Fill a small pot of water with a 2-inch depth of water. Set over a low heat with the bowl of green candy melts on top. Stir until the green candy melts have melted and are smooth. Remove from the heat.
- Drop a small dollop of green candy melt onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Use a brushstroke motion (similar to before, but in a longer motion to make a longer stripe) to make one thin, long leaf. Repeat with dollops of candy melt close together, connecting them at the base, to make the green leaf crown.
- Repeat with the green candy melts to make a total of 6 crowns.
- Chill for 15-20 minutes until set.
- To make pineapple cake:.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two quarter-sheet pans (9 x 13 inches).
- In a large bowl, mix the white cake mix, half the vanilla pudding mix, all of the vegetable oil, the 4 eggs, the water and half of the rum.
- Drain the crushed pineapple but reserve the juice. Add half of the crushed pineapple to the cake batter along with all of the shredded coconut. Fold together to combine.
- Divide the cake batter evenly between the two prepared cake pans, spreading out into even layers. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
- Let cool completely before assembly.
- To make the frosting:.
- In a large bowl combine the remaining crushed pineapple, remaining light rum, the reserved pineapple juice and remaining vanilla pudding mix, stirring until smooth and thickened.
- Fold in the thawed cool whip. Add the yellow food colouring and fold together to combine.
- Remove the cooled cake layers from the baking sheets. Use a 3-inch round cookie cutter to punch out 9 circles from each of the cake layers (so you have a total of eighteen 3-inch circles).
- Stack 3 cake circles on top of each other, sandwiching them together with 1 tbsp frosting between each layer. Repeat so you get six small 3-layer cakes.
- Use a serrated knife to carefully carve each small cake into a pineapple shape.
- Cover each small cake with frosting in an even layer.
- Cover with the chilled yellow candy melt ovals: start at the top of the cake, layering in rings going around the cake, allowing the candy melts to overlap slightly, until each cake is completely covered.
- Transfer the melted semisweet chocolate chips to a disposable piping bag. Snip off the very tip so you have a tiny opening. Pipe dots of dark chocolate randomly onto the yellow candy melts to represent the 'eyes' of the pineapple.
- Top each cake with one of the green candy melt crowns.
- Adding shredded coconut to your cakes will make it easier to trim into pineapple shapes - the coconut addition is not shown in the recipe video.

PINA COLADA CAKE (HYBRID PINEAPPLE UPSIDE-DOWN CAKE)
This is a hybrid pineapple upside-down cake which I've developed over the years. Instead of pineapple rings, I use crushed pineapple, coconut, and honey. It is very important to cool the mixture of butter and brown sugar before covering it with the rest of the ingredients, preventing the layer of pineapple and the cake mix from mixing prematurely. Makes one 9x13 baking pan.

- Remove baking pan from the refrigerator and cover brown sugar mixture with an even layer of crushed pineapple.
