Make this SUPER easy cake recipe made with crushed pineapple, then
Top it with frosting made with Whipping cream, cream cheese and coconut extract.
Then of course, top it with a cherry, and make them for your good friend’s big linebacker-looking, umbrella drink-drinking husband for his birthday!
David and Gigi are two of the most AWESOME friends a couple could have.
They love many of the same things we do, water, boating, concerts, football…basically just having a good time.
But I have to tell you, I never tire of going to a restaurant and David ordering a Strawberry Daiquiri and Gigi ordering a beer, and the waiter bringing them and sitting them down just the opposite, only to think she’s the one with the fru-fru umbrella drink.
You see, David isn’t a small dude.
It’s always good for a chuckle.
David also has a big sweet tooth, and usually if he does some sort a favor for us, (he’s a mechanic, so that’ll happen) he says “Aw… just pay me in brownies or something.”
So, when we decided to go out and celebrate David’s birthday last week, I decided to combine the best of both and make these fru-fru umbrella drink cupcakes for him!
all boxed up for the birthday boy, they came with a “juice pouch style” Frozen strawberry daiquiri
and some cocktail umbrellas
Top with this yummy frosting:
Decorate with straws, cherries and cocktail umbrellas.
Pineapple Bliss Cake – Adapted from SkinnyTaste.com
1 white cake mix (or yellow)
1 – 11 ounce can crushed pineapple with juice
1 teaspoon rum extract
1 – 8 ounce package cream cheese softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon coconut extract extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups heavy whipping cream
Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl for 2 minutes and pour into cupcakes liners.
Bake according to box instructions, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
In your mixer cream together cream cheese, sugar and extracts until smooth.
Switch to whisk attachment, and slowly add in whipping cream, beat until stiff peaks form.
* I like to put my mixer bowl and beaters in the freezer for a bit before I make this. Seems to peak better if it’s cold, but it’s not necessary. *
