1 box Swiss Chalet White Chocolate Mousse (or equivalent)
1 Quart heavy Cream
½ Cup Dark Rum
8 oz Crushed Pineapple – drained

Bake cake as directed in 2 – 9″ x 12″ rounds. Cool. Slice off rounded top level with baking pan and cut each cake into 2 layers (4 cake layers in total). Make Mousse according to the directions. After the mousse mixture is complete, slowly add heavy cream. Increase speed until mousse and heavy cream are incorporated.
Generously brush each layer of the cake with dark rum. Spread the mousse mix evenly thick on the first layer. Sprinkle with some of the pineapple. Top with next cake layer and again, spread with mousse then pineapple. Continue with each layer. The layers of the cake and mousse should be the same height. Coat the sides and top with the mousse mix. Sprinkle toasted coconut over the finished cake.
