Eggless & Butterfree Pina Colada Cake/Tort Pina Colada

Pina colada is a sweet rum based cocoktail prepared usually with rum, coconut cream and pineapple juice, usually served either by blending together or shaken with ice. Actually this drink tastes fabulous, if you go for this combination in a cake you can call the cake as pina colada cake. This cake was this month's challenge of Baking Eggless,a monthly event owned by Gayathri. The member of this group should convert a egg based baked goodies to an eggless bakes with available egg substitutes, each member of this group come up with their eggless bakes and this group is  running successfully more than a year. This Pina colada cake was challenged by Meena Thenappan of Chettinad Fiesta.

Thanks Meena for challenging us with this fabulous cake, i prepared it during this weekend with a eggless and butterfree vanilla-pineapple sponge cake and frosted this cake with mascarpone cheese-coconut cream. I went for both fresh and canned pineapples along with storebought mascarpone cheese,coconut cream. This cake turned out extremely spongy, very fruity and extremely delicious coz of both pineapple mousse and coconut cream prepared with mascarpone cheese and coconut milk. This cake suits prefectly for celebration like birthday,get together or else a kid's party. This cake may sounds rich but somehow they are low fat coz this cake is completely butterfree and eggfree. The whole cooking process may sounds long and time consuming, but this cake is worth to try.Sending to Srivalli's Cake Mela.
