Pineapple Lush Cake (recipe too)

Let's see...I got this recipe from my new blog & Facebook Friend: Akram over at Akram's Ideas


 I baked a cake from scratch, and not being a fan of Cool-Whip (and feeling like there was enough sugar in this recipe), I replaced it with whipped unsweetened cream.   I would make this cake again~ it was easy and impressive.

 
Notes:
~ Cake: "Hot Milk Sponge Cake" from "Better Homes & Gardens".
~ I did not make this "diet" =)
~For the first time ever, I tried to add Gelatin to the whipped cream to stabilize it-- ended up not miking in, and the result was good sized lumps of gelatin... =(  I guess that I need to practise that technique!  =)
~ Next time, I think that I'd serve additional whipped cream
~ Original recipe for Pineapple Lush Cake is HERE
~ Turning this into a trifle (with pineapple chunks) would be good too!

This looks great! I also like how you were able to modify the recipe to make it your own. Great job!
