Lisa G. Sweet Pantry Gal


My father not a big fan of heavy sweet cakes, but loves his pineapple. I made him a pineapple jello cake last year and set off to do the same, forgot the jello so lucky for me I gathered other pantry items to make him this yummy cake for his birthday.
Happy 75th Birthday Papa!!!
