Im doing coconut cake, which i usually fill with a coconut smbc, but was asked to do a pineapple filling instead....
I don't know what to make for it though... I hate pineapple so the thought of this grosses me out... does anyone have any good recipes? and do i just do a like pineapple puree or a creamy pineapple something??? Please help!

You could use pineapple sleeve filling. Or buy a can/jar of either pineapple pie filling or pineapple preserves. I would buy pineapple preserves and mix it with a little buttercream to get a kind of pineapple mousse effect.

Here's one

2 egg yolks
3 TBSP sugar
1/3 cup pineapple juice
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup whipping cream, whipped

Beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and lemon colored. Add pineapple juice. Cook and stir over low hear until thick, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat and add marshmallows. Chill. Fold in vanilla and whipped cream.


This is the other one I have

1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp all purpose flour
1 slightly beaten egg
3/4 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup whipping cream
2 tbsp sugar

Mix 1/4 cup sugar and flour. Combine egg and 3 tbsp cold walter; add to sugar flour mixture. Heat juices; slowly stir small amount into egg mixture; return to hot mixture. Cook over low heat till thick. Chill. Whip cream with 2 tbsp sugar. Fold into juice mixture.


I have never used either, but I think the first one sounds easier and both will give you a creamy pineapple filling.
You can also put a can of crushed pineapple and some corn starch in a pan and cook it till it is thick and bubbly for a non-creamy filling.

I just use a sleeve filling and add in additional crushed canned pineapple. It's really good.

I cook a can of crushed pineapple with the juice, added lemon juice and zest, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and a vanilla bean until it is thickened and gel like (this is adapted from Sky high 3 layer cakes).

You can use this straight up or mix it in some S/MBC or even cream cheese frosting.

It's a favorite of mine.

I did a pineapple cream cheese filling in a coconut cake a while back. Just mixed in a jar of pineapple ice cream topping and some pina colada LorAnn. Was delish!!
HTH!

I use this recipe all the time, and I make a pina colada cake. Vanilla cake, pineapple filling, coconut BC frosting and shredded coconut on top. It's easy and DELICIOUS.....

PINEAPPLE CAKE FILLING
Printed from Epicurious.com

1 (20-oz) can crushed pineapple, including juice
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice


Make pineapple filling: Stir together filling ingredients in a heavy saucepan until cornstarch is dissolved. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then simmer, stirring, 3 minutes. Cool filling completely, stirring occasionally

Gosh, I wish I had seen all of this before last weekend when I made pineapple curd, had it come out runny, and spent hours worrying about it before dumping half of it into a batch of cream cheese icing. It all came out fine, but this would have saved me a ton of time.

Let me know what you think. I know I love it, but I also try to be sure that I'm using the best tasting recipes for people, and to have more than one opinion is always a good thing.

Share more details, this is so exciting, I can't tell you how happy I am for you. Don't hear these kind of stories everyday.

Well the women who ordered the cake & another women is opening a 4000 sf studio I think that does like glmour pictures... well they do bday parties & bridal parties so since she raved about the cake she asked me to advertise with them... and to do the grand opening on the 27th.... we are having a meeting next week to figure things out... i designed the cakes i think... one is for brides & the other is for diva little girls.... it took me forever to figure out what to do & im not sure im happy with them yet.... & then we have to discuss if I need to serve possibly 1000+ people..... and then what type of discount do I give?? thanks for listening! I have been talking left & right to cake muggles so its hard to figure things out!

Bounce ideas, thoughts, anything off us. I can't wait to hear how it turns out too, take lots of photos.
