Guess the cake made me the Star Of the Party!! So its not just for my Kiddo that i m his Super Mommy…. made it to my husbands Super Wifey too!! Cheers
Sieve the maida, cornflour and the baking powder twice. Cream the butter and the sugar.
Add the condensed milk and beat. Add the zest of the orange and the Malibu coconut rum and beat again. Now fold the maida little by little till all the maida is incorporated.
Pour in a cake tin. Bake the cake at 180 degrees for about 20 to 25 mins.
Cool the cake completely. Beat the cream, powdered sugar and the blue curacao till stiff peaks form.
Cut the pineapple slices into small pieces. Cut the cake horizontally into two slices. Pour the pineapple syrup on both the layers till they are soaked but not soggy.
Cream one layer of the cake and sprinkle the pineapple slices on it. Put the second layer of cake on it.
Pour the remaining cream and ice the rest of the cake gently and decorate with pineapple slices.
Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.

Most of us Ubanites have this new found love for a space that’ll give us some “space”..Literally!
A place outside the boundaries of your home or workplace where you can be alone or with your friends and not be bothered with the hovering staff to take your order, execute and slap a bill and wait for you to empty space. I love my personal space and I’m very protective about it. So when the saturation sets in, ( being a mom to two naughty boys, I need to reset myself very often) I head to a nearby cafe just alone or with my bestie to spend next few hours in peace.
