Why Pineapple Hill?

The pineapple has been a symbol of hospitality since the days of the early American colonies. According to legend, the symbol began with the sea captains of New England who would spear a pineapple on a fence post outside their home to let the community know of their safe return home and to invite friends to visit and share their hospitality.

Likewise, we hope Pineapple Hill Designs boutique will make you feel “Welcome”! We know how important it is to find something special for that certain someone or just the right accessory to complete a room. We believe everyday is a day to celebrate, and we have just the thing to help you create something special out of the ordinary.

No-Bake Birthday Cake

This kid-pleasing marshmallow-and-crisp-rice cereal confection has a sweet secret:
chocolate-marshmallow icing inside.
This Cake is Gluten Free!
(from Martha Stewart Living Kids)
Makes one 8-inch, 2-layer cake; serves 8
Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Coat two 8-by-2-inch round cake pans with cooking spray.
  2. Prepare crisp-rice mixture; before pouring into pan, reserve 2 tablespoons for patching cake, and set aside, covered.
  3. Divide remaining crisp-rice mixture among prepared cake pans. Press into pans with greased fingers to level. Let cool until set, at least 30 minutes.
  4. Run a knife around edges of cakes to loosen; unmold onto parchment paper. While frosting is still warm, pour onto center of 1 cake layer, and spread evenly to edges.
  5. Let stand 10 minutes. Place second cake layer on top; press down gently. Using reserved pieces of crisp-rice mixture, patch edges where frosting is visible.
  6. Decorate with cereal, arranging pieces around top,middle, and bottom edges. Let cake stand until firm enough to slice, at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  7. After 2 hours, wrap cake in plastic wrap to prevent it from getting too hard to slice.
