This cake is moist, light and delicious with a creamy pineapple frosting.

I just bought 5 pounds of rhubarb at one of our local fruit farms and decided I would try this recipe they handed out to us. I made a few changes of my own including a pineapple frosting. Everyone enjoyed them and nobody guessed that it was made with rhubarb.

Original recipe from local fruit farm.
