Pineapple Coconut SMBC

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I want to make a pineapple coconut SMBC. I was planning on adding coconut flakes and a can of crushed pineapple, drained. I've never added fruit to SMBC so I don't know if this ok to do. Or do I need to make a pineapple purée first and then mix that in? I appreciate you're help! icon_smile.gif

I added pineapple puree and ended up with a mess.  Way too soft to pipe (tasted good though).  I'm sure someone else will chime in with a better suggestion for you... I think pureed pineapples might just have too much water in them.  Pineapple curd maybe?

Thanks!! I know what not to do now! Pineapple curd sounds like a good alternative.

For coconut, I add cream of coconut and coconut extract. What about pineapple frozen concentrate?  Might add more flavor and wouldn't have the water content.

I wouldn't do that unless you intend to keep it as a filling only. I do stuff like that to smbc all the time, fruit, purees, etc. but only use it for filling, and dam it.

You can't make pineapple curd so easily. Pineapple has enzymes that break down most of the foods you put them in. You can buy pineapple preserves, that would be your easiest and most sure way to go, I think.

I have used pineapple with regular buttercream but I don't mix it together. I first take pureed pineapple, add a little sugar and boil it until it thickens more like a jam consistency. Cool before use. Slice the cake, first  spread the jam and then apply buttercream  (which can be coconut flavoured). 

I tried mango with SMBC mixing it together and it did look curdled but tasted good.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions! I ended up making pineapple curd. Also added coconut extract to the smbc. It was delicious!
