METHOD

To bake the cake base:

  • Take 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a bowl, add 2/3 cup water. Beat this using a hand blender till they are well combined.
  • Add 1 tsp cake gel to the mix and whip this on high speed till you get stiff peaks.
  • Now, add 4 tbsp cake concentrate/improver and gently fold this using a spatula.
  • In goes, 5 tbsp cornflour and fold it using a spatula. Best this using an electric beater till everything is well combined.
  • Add 1 cup plain flour (maida) and repeat the same process.
  • Add few drops of pineapple essence and mix well.
  • Finally, add 1/8 cup refined oil making sure that it goes in at the end and not to over whip the batter.
  • Pour the batter in a mold greased and lined. I am using a 7 inch square mold here so that I can cut thin sheets once done.
  • Preheat the oven at 180 degree Celsius for 10 min and bake the cake for 30-35 min or till done in the same temperature. To check, insert a skewer and it should come out clean.
  • Take the cake out of the mold and let it cool to room temperature.

To make the pastry:

  • Mix 2 tsp powdered sugar with 1-2 cup chopped pineapple and keep it aside. Repeat the same process for 1/2 cup pineapple triangles (approx. 1-1.5 inch).
  • Now, cut the cake in equal three layers horizontally using a serrated knife.
  • Place a cake board on a turn table and apply some whipped cream in the center; place the bottom most cake layer over it.
  • Sprinkle some simple syrup made by mixing 1/2 cup water, 2 tbsp sugar and few drops of vanilla essence.
  • Take a dollop of whipped cream (whipped by adding some pineapple essence) and spread it evenly on the cake. Top this with some chopped sugar coated pineapple pieces.
  • Place second layer of cake and repeat the same process.
  • Now, place the third cake layer, sprinkle some whipped cream and apply an even layer of cream all around the cake. Level and finish the cake using a scraper.
  • Cut the cake in 6-8 equal pieces using a sharp knife and make some swirls and designs by piping some whipped cream.
  • In the end, garnish it with some pineapple triangles and cherries. Enjoy!
