A flavorful pineapple buttercream frosting, delicious on a yellow cake or pineapple chiffon cake.
We're David and David, and you're in Outsider Tart in London, an American style bakery. Today, we're going to show you some tips and tricks on frosting and finishing cakes. I'm going to show you how to make pineapple frosting.
Okay, well, a quick way to get a nice finish on a cake that you're working on is to take about a cup and a half of powdered sugar and put it in a bowl and then a nice fruity glaze that goes well. Pineapples are a nice one. It's got a nice citric bite to it as well as it's somewhat sweet.
So, you just take a little of your pineapple juice. You can also use crushed pineapple which also has some nice juice in it and it gives you chunks which is nice and mix that in. Fold it in gently into your powdered sugar, not create a big old cloud.
I'm always worried about that, messing up the whole kitchen. And don't worry if you add a little too much liquid, you can always go back in and add in more powdered sugar to either firm it up or you can just have a nice runny glaze. If you add the glaze that we're making to a hot cake or muffin or cookie even for that matter, it will thin out and spread very nicely across the whole cookie so it's better to start out with a thicker glaze.
In this case, we're going to act as if our cake has been cooled already so we want a slightly thinner glaze which is where we've ended up. Well, you can tell the difference. So, mix all these together.
It's how it falls off your spatula. So, it's best to do this in a bowl with a spatula because as you see, I'm flattening it out which is getting all the lumps out of the sugar so we have none left and then break it all down and if you look on our blade, it comes off in ribbons. And that's how you make pineapple icing. .
