The recipe is fairly easy to make, just a bit time consuming. Mine didn't look nearly as lovely as Martha's but that's to be expected, Martha is perfect after all! (hah). I don't have the right round cookie cutters she uses to make her mango slices fit perfectly into the pineapple rings, I just cut it out so it looked kind of sloppy, but when something tastes this good who cares right? I served it up with some vanilla ice cream, and it was a delightfully tropical dessert on this miserable rainy day.
If you are tempted to skip the parchment paper, don't. I never used to bake with parchment paper but it makes getting your cakes out of the pan an absolute dream. No worries about bits of cake getting stuck, I highly recommend it.
