Ambrosia, food of the gods in Greek and Roman mythology, is something a bit more humble in most American households. But the tall and tropical ambrosia cake has more heavenly aspirations.
Why This Recipe Works
To prevent our Ambrosia Cake recipe’s pineapple curd from curdling, we combined the hot juice and egg-and-sugar slowly. We cut our angel food cake into four layers and sandwiched the curd and the orange and pineapple slices in between. We then used orange-flavored frosting to adhere the orange slices, and the pineapple curd to adhere the pineapple slices.
