If you like Piña coladas, and getting caught in the rain....

I might as well put my hands up and confess – I have a thing at the moment about turning drinks into Bear-y cakes. Cola, Cherry Cola, Malibu and Lime, Irish Coffee… These were my take on piña colada flavoured cakes made for sister’s 21st birthday, I’d been wanting to do them for a while and not just because I have large bottle of coconut rum taking up valuable new cake stand space in the kitchen. I had been waiting for the right occasion though, due to my normal target market for cake having the combined age of 6 years.

They were really easy to do – it’s a traditional vanilla sponge, but instead of vanilla flavouring I used 1 tsp of pineapple essence. I then made a coconut rum buttercream (110g unsalted butter, 500g icing sugar, 2.5 tbsp coconut rum, 2 tsp milk) piped it on using a large round nozzle and sprinkled with dessicated coconut.

They were decorated with a glace cherry and cocktail umbrella, only for me to realise that having done that, they didn’t fit in the cake box to take to my sister. I also then turned my back for two seconds to answer the phone and found Baby Bear using the full cake box as a maraca….
