I want to make a banana split type cupcake.  I thought a yellow cake mix base with chopped maraschino cherries and then frosted with a light whipped pineapple frosting and then drizzle with chocolate and some chopped peanuts, then top it off with a cherry.  Anyone have any good light and fluffy pineapple frosting that pipes well for a tall look?  Thanks.

i have a vegan recipe for Banana Split cupcakes that starts with a banana cupcake, but into the batter once in the cup you put a tsp of pineapple preserves and some shaved chocolate. To be vegan the frosting is a bit limited, but i would frost them with a stablized whipped cream, or a 7 minute to give a marshmallow taste.  Then drizzle with chocolate ganache, a sprinkle of chopped nuts and a marichino cherry on top.
