Aren't these flowers adorable? They are dried pineapple flowers.

A melon baller is ideal, but I'm sure you can cut them out with a sharp knife.

I dressed up a regular box cake, but I normally make my batter from scratch.

I used the box instructions but with simple substitutions to make it a bit more special:

Coconut milk instead of water

Butter instead of oil

I added 1/4 C crushed pineapple,

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 grated nutmeg

I wanted something tropical like a pina colada idea, hence the coconut and pineapple.

The coconut milk, and butter made the cake super moist and rich.

 This is a lovely little cake to bring to a party or to have for guests with a cup of coffee.
