I've made Pineapple cakes & Coconut cakes, but I've never made one with both Pineapple & coconut together. Has anyone done this?
Do you make: a regular pineapple cake with coconut frosting?
a yellow cake with pineapple filling & coconut frosting?
Have other suggestions...?

I made a Pina Colada cake once which is pineapple, coconut and rum. I used the Margarita cupcake recipe here on CC as a guide. I used the Pina Colada frozen mix as my liquid. I added rum to the cake as well (although I may have done that as a simle syrup). And I made a coconut buttercream using the Lorann Coconut for flavouring. I used a bit of that mixed with canned pineapple and a little bit of juice for the filling. Have to be careful of quantities because the pineapple with still release liquid, and it breaks down the buttercream just a bit. I out a thin layer of the regular buttercream down on the layer before filling it to prevent seepage. It turned out really good. icon_smile.gif

You could tort and make alternating layers of pineapple and coconut cake. Start on bottom with pineapple cake top with a coconut filling, next a layer of coconut cake topped with pineapple filling and then repeat for two more layers ending with coconut buttercream to cover.

That recipe sounds delicious. There is a restaurant near me that serves a chambord cake that is fabulous - pineapple, coconut, vanilla pudding. It is made by a local baker so I don't know the recipe. If I had to guess-

yellow cake like WASC with a butter or vanilla flavor
Chambord simple syrup
pudding with pineapple pieces & coconut mixed in
dollop of whipped cream

I may have to stop there for dessert tomorrow!

Here is mine...I make a vanilla cake and then add coconut and a touch of coconut extact to the batter.
I then fill mine with coconut mousse, pineapple filling (which you can get on global sugar art, or oasis supply) and then sprinkle with coconut...cover in buttercream, and top then with the pineapple filling and sprinkled coconut. I made this in the summer and it was a huge hit...

My pina colada cake is more of a pineapple cake (I've done it with both cake mix and scratch cake recipes - I LOVE seriouscake's yellow cake recipe...you just sub out the liquid from a 20 oz can of crushed pineapple and mince the crushed pineapple finer in the cake) with coconut buttercream and coconut flakes. If I know the person is a coconut lover, then I add a couple of teaspoons of coconut flavouring to the cake batter before baking...if they are more of a pineapple lover, then I add a couple of teaspoons of pineapple flavouring to the buttercream.

I hope that helps!

Like some of you suggested, I didn't know whether they were more coconut fans or pineapple fans so I ended up adding both pineapple & coconut to both the cake & frosting. Similiar to the one PennieK suggested, but with my own twist. They were very pleased. Thank you for all your suggestions! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif
