Carrot cake gets a new spin when the cream cheese icing becomes a luscious filling punctuated by juicy pieces of pineapple. Though fresh is best, you can use pineapple canned in its own juice.

As others have commented, this did take some time but it was so worth the extra effort. The flavors mixed together very nicely and the frosting with the pineapple really hit the spot. It was a huge hit at our family dinner party.
I feel a little guilty being the rating curmudgeon in the group giving this only four stars. I've been on a roll lately (no pun intended) making cake rolls and this one just seems to fall short of my expectations. Don't get me wrong, this is a lovely cake, and certainly worth making, but I don't think it as flavorful as others I've made, especially the cake part.
