Pina Colada Cake

Today is J's birthday. With D's board exams fast approaching, I had totally lost track of the dates. Thankfully better sense prevailed yesterday morning. Though my initial plans were to make a cake with fondant icing, I had to scrap the idea due to lack of time. The cake I made was Pina Colada cake
