Did you know that today is National Pineapple Day? Neither did I. It’s also Toast Tuesday, Orange Day and Popsicle Week. I know!!! It’s starting to give me blogger anxiety. I mean what do I post today on Instagram??? Good thing I procrastinated and held off on this Pineapple Cake, so I have something awesome to share with you all. I officially declare this my National Pineapple Day post!
I know, I know you are all looking at this cake thinking I can’t make this. Why oh why is she being so extra with her food. It’s from a box yo! Simple Mills. Paleo, healthy, nutritious and no this is not a sponsored post, but Simple Mills if you see this make this food bloggers dream come true! I mean even the icing they make has single digit sugar grams in one serving. As a stay at home mom who looks for pockets of time to do anything, these mixes are life savers. I can then focus on making it pretty and that I did with just fresh fruit!
From the photos it looks like a big cake, but all I did was use one 8×8 square cake pan and cut it into 4 equal square pieces so it stacks nicely together. If you do want to present it this way I recommend freezing the whole slab of 8×8 cake first and then cutting into squares. It’s the best cake decorating tip I picked up from watching many hours of the Food Channel. It’s also helpful for the cake to be frozen when you do these types of naked cakes with the dramatic drizzle. The cold cake helps hold those nice drips.
And there you have it… easy from the box pineapple cake. Happy National Pineapple Day!
