    Total failure

    I just did the Betty Crocker angel food cake that you put the can of crushed pineapple in. Went to suspend it and the top fell off. Inverted it anyway and it plopped out onto the plate. I guess I will pick some thing up at the grocery store tomorrow.

    I don't think you should suspend it with the pineapple in it. I make mine in a 9X13 pan. Only do that with plain angelfood cake.

    I saw it in the angel food pan with the pineapple in the recipe I tried but I certainly will do it in the 9X13 next time. Live and learn.

    If you can eat it, it's not a total failure! Throw some whipped cream on it and pretend you wanted to make it that way.

    I agree...if it's edible just eat it. I was taking a cake for my employer's birthday one morning & a man ran a red light & I had to hit my brakes really hard & the cake flew off the car seat. Fortunately it was in a container that it stayed in but the looks of it was a disaster. When I got to work I just dumped it in a large bowl, stirred/cut it all up & mixed the pudding/topping in with it & we all gobbled it up with no worries.

    Whipped cream covers a multitude of sins. Slather it on and call it good.

    If the cake tastes good, mix a container of cool whip with a pkg of vanilla pudding, made with only 1 cup of milk. Cut the cake into cubes and put it in a bowl. It would make a delicious trifle. Top with more pineapple or coconut and nuts.
    I made a gluten free angelfood cake that fell apart and did this.

    Don't the English call it a Trifle when you mix whipped cream with pieces of cake? That's my story and I am sticking to it! LOL!

    I have made the angel food cake with the pineapple and it works best in a rectangular pan, as someone else said.

    Oops! It seems we all had the same trifle idea.

    Good advice! I would only suspend a plain cake as others have stated. I get a lot of use out of my 9 x 13 pan.

    In my home area, we have a cake recipe that is called "dead cake," because it is fast to whip up for funerals. It requires one box of ONE-STEP angel food cake mix. Yes, the one-step is important. The second ingredient is a can of fruit pie filling, berry flavors work better that apple because the apple has large chunks of fruit. Use ONLY those two ingredients, no extra water, juice anything. It looks like school glue when you are mixing it. Place it in a 9 X 13 and bake according to time and temp on the pkg. This make a flat cake, more like a bar. Top it with whipped cream.
