Yellow Carnations & Pineapple Upside Down Bundt Cake: Sweet Dessert for a Sweet 2011 ICC World Cup Victory

And what’s all this about, you ask?  Well, this is Part Three in a series of three consecutive posts celebrating the sweet victory of the 2011 ICC World Cup victory.  And where might the other two be, you say, and what are those about?  Not to worry, they’re all right here.  The Breakfast of Champions Ode to Sachin & the 2011 ICC World Cup post is right here, and the Hyderabadi Biryani In Honor Of The Boys of Mumbai is also right here.

 So, what would you serve for dessert after a breakfast and dinner like that?  Well, that’s a tough call, but I’d vote for Pineapple Upside Down Bundt Cake, of course!  This delectable dessert is a variation of the traditional cake by the same name, and was made by my indescribably amazing firstborn.  It is a variation because instead of pineapple rings, pineapple chunks have been used, and instead of a regular round cake, she baked it in a bundt pan. 

It was served with a scoop of the finest Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and a Drizzle of Pineapple Juice & Marmalade Syrup, a concoction that came right out of our imaginations, by the way.

Oh, and those fresh yellow carnations on the table:  we picked those up from a trip to the supermarket.  Yellow, the traditional color of homecoming, perfect in a way for the event being celebrated:  a homecoming of the World Cup after a very long time!
