How to make pineapple cake :
Take pineapple chunks in a bowl and add 1 tbsp flour on it and toss or mix with a fork such that the flour coats well on the pieces. Keep aside.
In a large mixing bowl sift remaining flour along with baking powder and salt and set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl whisk sugar and butter together till creamy.
Now add egg one at a time and whisk till its light and fluffy.
Now add pineapple essence and give a quick stir again.
Add the dry mix into the wet mix along with the pineapple chunks and fold to make a thick batter.
Add some milk and mix well till the batter is smooth.
Line or grease/dust a medium size cake pan (i used loaf pan) and pour in the batter into it.
Tap the pan gently on the counter to settle the air bubbles.
Place the pan in a pre heated oven and bake the cake on 180 degree C for 30-35 minutes or till the tooth pick comes out clean.
Transfer the cake on a wire rack and let it cool down completely.
How to frost the cake :
Take 1/2 cup water and 3-4 tbsp icing sugar and mix to make a sweet solution and keep aside.
Now carefully slice the cake horizontally into two half and set aside keeping the inside part facing up.
Now brush the sweet solution prepared on both the halves generously to make the cake more soft and spongy.
Take the frosting prepared and layer the bottom half of the cake first using a spatula.
Add pineapple chunks all over the layered frosting.
Now carefully place the top half of the cake over the icing.
Similarly layer the top surface of the cake with some more frosting.
Place the pineapple roundels on the top and add the remaining icing in a piping bag and pip small florets on the border using small star nozzle.
Sprinkle some silver balls all over and refrigerate the cake for 15-20 minutes before serving
