This cake is delicious! Family devoured it. Everyone mentioned how "light" it was...not a heavy dessert. I took advice from other posts and used a little less sugar. Not a heavy pineapple flavor....just enough. item not reviewed by moderator and published

One day I lick my lips and kissed my hand with a peck, For I heard tell there was a cake that was better than having sex. And because this man of mine was a total ass wipe jerk, No pill or potion every made on him could ever work. So I baked it! A quickie cake with no foreplay Just instant it in a box- Baked it up, then cooked pineapple And slopped it on the top. I grabbed me up some pudding and softened cream cheese too, Then mixed them both together till the flavor blended through. I spread it on the pineapple that laid atop the cake, Building up a climax now I could hardly wait. A threesome with bananas is what I had in mind, But instead I sliced them up atop that sexy cake of mine. My body quivered all excited holding whipped cream in my hand I smeared it on the cake like I would a sexy man. A couple kinds of nuts was added to make a garnish for the top. Then I plunged my face into it and like a nympho couldn’t stop. Better then sex? not sure but it did the trick for me. AC Parkers item not reviewed by moderator and published

I am compelled to write a review on this cake ( my first review by the way) because I thought it was the most disgusting cake I've ever tasted. I made it for my parents anniversary because my parents love coconut. My husband said it tasted lie hat he would think cake in jail would taste like! He was right on. It was waaaaaaay to sweet. It was just terrible. I followed all the directions to a T. I can't say enough how bad it was. We threw half of it away. There were 8 adults there and they all agreed it is definitely NOT better than sex. Even my 91 year old grandmother!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
