"This is incredible, and so easy to make. I used crushed pineapple in juice instead of heavy syrup and it came out great. I plan to keep the ingredients on hand for this cake because it's a great last minute dessert if you're out of time. And it takes so good, I'd make it even if I wasn't in a rush. As for the whipped cream, I'm sure it would make it delicious, but we didn't miss it!"
