    Pina Colada Cake

    Pineapple Cake mix (or Yellow Cake Mix)
    12 ozs Cool Whip
    1 Frozen Bacardi Pina Colada Mix, thawed
    1 ½ ozs Coconut Rum
    3 eggs
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    3/4 cup water
    one jar pineapple preserves or pineapple topping, chilled

    7 plastic sword toothpicks
    one orange, sliced thin
    7 maraschino cherries
    drain fruit on paper towels

    Prepare cake mix as directed, using water, 1 oz rum, eggs, and vegetable oil.  Bake in two 9" cake pans.
    After baking, cool on wire racks.

    In a large mixing bowl, combine Pina Colada mix and 1/2 oz rum, blending thoroughly with a wire whisk.  Add Cool Whip and whisk till well blended and thick.

    With cake plate ready, take each cake on a wire rack and insert a large knife into the center of the side of the cake and cut around to split cake into two layers.  Working quickly, flip the cake over onto your hand and then back.  One layer of the split cake should be in your hand and the other still on the wire rack.  Immediately flip the cake in your hand onto the cake plate.  Spread 1/3 of the Cool Whip mixture evenly over layer on plate.  Flip the wire rack over on top of the filling, taking care to place it evenly on top of the first layer.  Spread 2/3 of pineapple preserves over this layer.  Repeat the process for the second cake.  For the top of the cake, spoon Cool Whip mixture around the edge and spread into a ring, making a well about 4" across, reserving about two tablespoons of the Cool Whip mixture.     Fill this well with remaining pineapple preserves.
    Mound the reserved Cool Whip mixture in the center of the pineapple preserves.  

    To decorate, Stick a sword toothpick through one side of the orange slice, then through a maraschino cherry, then through the other side of the orange slice.   Stick the sharp end of the toothpick into the center of the cake, then evenly space 6 more orange/cherry garnishes around the top of the cake.

    Chill for several hours before serving. Keep covered.
