TCS ~ May's Pineapple Coconut Cake

We continue to bake from "World Class Cakes" by Roger Pizey!
This month Cake Choices are...

Genoise with Raspberries and Cream p.26
Lime and Poppyseed Syrup Cake p.118
Pineapple Coconut Cakes with Pineapple Syrup p.172
Sacher Torte p.57
I am late in baking and posting my May cake choice, all for a valid reason....
I wanted a cake for my BD!!
Pineapple Coconut Cakes with Pineapple Syrup
and pardon my first attempt at making pineapple flowers
(I totally forgot all about them being still in the oven, with gas fire on!)
Just pretend that they are nicely browned.....
I found three pieces of fluted mini pans in my stash:
bottom measured 2" diameter and the top - tip to tip ~ 3.5"
(almost accurate to the required fluted brioche pans in the recipe)
BD gift to myself - another Chinese spoon to my collection!
There were three pieces with this design, but one has a small chip,
and the other with fading silver line at one spot.
The Cake Slice is baking from
"World Class Cakes" by Roger Pizey, for our new season!
