"Ah, nothing like the sweet taste of the tropics! Using my leftover coconut bunny cake I created a tiramisu featuring the tropical flavors of pineapple, mango, ginger, and macadamia nuts. My cake was a white cake but a leftover yellow cake would work just as well. Sliced almonds can be substituted for macadamia nuts." — Roxanne E Chan

1 (8 ounce) package
pineapple juice concentrate, thawed
leftover bunny cake, cubed
rum flavored extract
chopped crystallized ginger
chopped macadamia nuts
sliced fresh mango, garnish
the crystallized giner and macadamia nuts made this recipe. I didn't have leftover cake so I made a white cake in a jelly roll pan, cut it in quarters and stacked those for four layers. instead of mango juice and rum extract, I used a mango flavored rum to brush on each layer, which gave great flavor to the cake. frosting the cake with cool whip really balanced it all out. decorate with fresh fruit for an impressive look! this served 10-12
followed other member's suggestions and used an angel food cake. way too sweet for my taste this is nothing like a tiramisu. probably wouldnt make again but thanks for the recipe anyway.
This was excellent, however I would double the recipe next time as there is enough to make seveal batches. Also, I sprinkled Rum (dark) on the cubed cake. This added needed flavor. Also,
I used Angel food cake and added coconut to the recipe. Topped it with whippped cream and added a slice of Mango to the top for presentation.
I used real rum instead of rum extract and topped the dessert with Cool Whip. It was a huge hit! I brought it to my office for a potluck and got rave reviews -- although I'm afraid people may have been a little tipsy from the rum!
This is WONDERFUL, Quick and Easy I didn't have any leftover cake so I used a purchased angelfood cake. Will be good in summer when tyropical fruits are abundant and cheap.
Great recipe, only changes are I went easy on the ginger, used about a 1/4 cup real rum instead of extract and I used sponge cake with a little mango jelly spread on it before cubing it up... next time I may fold some whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture...
Taste good but ibdont know what to do with macadamias and don't have in the list of ingredients the pineapple.
