This cake is fantastic all on its own, but if you want to jazz it up a bit, consider topping it with some fresh whipped cream or a dollop of Cool Whip non-dairy whipped topping, It’s delicious with a scoop of ice cream or fresh fruit, too. The pineapple flavor goes really well with berries like blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.
