Pineapple topping *

1 cup sugar

Heat in a saucepan until melted. Remove from heat and add 1/3 cup light rum. Prick holes in the cake and pour the topping over it.

* I didn’t use this. It’s too buttery! I use a pwd sugar and orange glaze instead and it’s a much lighter taste.

My Orange Glaze

1  1/2 cups~ 2 cups pwd sugar

2 teas grated orange zest

freshly squeezes orange juice (about 4 T ?)

Stir in only 2 or 3 T of juice to start.It will be thick and hard to stir but will soon become smooth. Add only enough juice to make of spreading consistency . Pour over cake and let it run down the sides. It will harden in an hour or so.
