Gâteau de Quatre Royales aux Fraises Macérées et Chantilly

On March 2nd, the Znooty kitchen was destroyed when a tree fell on it. Since then, I had been cooking in a dorm kitchen that was anything but Znooty. But this week, we moved back into our house, complete with a new, Znootier kitchen. To celebrate, I made the Znootiest confection I could think of.

Piña Colada Rum Cake

Yesterday I made piña coladas. They tasted ok, but they weren’t frozen or emulsified enough because my blender is not quite up to this task. I had some cream of coconut and pineapple and rum left, so I made the cake you see above. It is very dense and sweet and rummy. I also added some candied ginger which gave it a bit of bite.

Next time I have piña colada makings, I will skip the frozen beverages and make cake.
