Pineapple Icebox Cake
Here is a popular dessert in my family. The original calls for almonds which I found to be rather bland. I loved it with brazil nuts. If you can't get brazil nuts substitute caramelized pecans or chopped walnuts. Use which ever are your favourite."Initially, I was a little skeptical with how this cake looked. Mine definitely did not look like some of the cakes I had made in the past. However, it turned out DELICIOUS and it was a HUGE hit at a dinner party I went to! Super easy and great basic formula to tailor it to your dinner menu. I used a pre-made butter rum cake and pecans instead of Brazil nuts. The morning after the party five people had emailed me to ask for the recipe. " - Ginger2345

Pineapple Icebox Cake Preparation
Cut the cake into one inch thick slices.
Cream butter and icing sugar until fluffy.
Add egg yolks one at a time, beating after each addition and scraping the sides.
Add vanilla, pineapple and brazil nuts.
Beat egg whites until stiff but moist and fold into mixture gently.
Place a layer of cake in a dish, then a layer of pineapple-butter mixture; continue to layer until all the cake and mixture are used up, ending with the pineapple mixture.
Cover with foil and freeze for 24 hours.
When ready to use take out and thaw for a 10 minutes. Garnish with whipped cream, a maraschino cherry and sprig of mint,or candied orange pieces -- whatever suits you.
Variation: drained peaches or ripe mangoes could be substituted for the pineapple. I have only ever made it with pineapple.
