This recipe is awesome! I have never ever made a PUD cake before, and it turned out perfectly. Don't be afraid of making it double-stacked, either. It really isn't too difficult, and it looks absolutely stunning! A few tips: Make sure that the pans are well buttered, to only use a butter recipe yellow cake mix, and to only use 9 inch round cake pans (otherwise the pineapple slices don't fit right). I also added a bit of cream to get rid of the cake mix taste. Since I was making this for a Christmas party, I omitted the coconut (too summery), and instead added chopped pecans in the spaces between the pineapple slices. Lastly, If you don't have enough juice leftover, just top off what you have with plain, old, unsweetened pineapple juice. Oh yeah. One last thing ... I also added rum flavored extract to the cake mix.
