Even the topping of this recipe is simple, just sprinkling the whole thing with powdered sugar. You can have some fun with this because you can use powdered sugar to create designs on the top of the cake. You can go on the internet and find any design that will fit on the cake and just trace it out and make a stencil. Set the stencil on the cake and just sprinkle the powdered icing over top. Remove the stencil and you will have a fun and fanciful design on the top of the pineapple bars recipe.
Whether it is this pineapple recipe or other bar recipes - squares and bars recipes are almost always very simple snacks or treats. Just like these pineapple bars - they often do not have any sort of icing on top of them, and are often somewhat less sweet than a more dinner like dessert, such as cake. Squares, bars and cakes are really quite similar, with cakes simply more ramped up versions of the squares. So cakes might have more of everything, including butter, sugar, flour, milk and so on, as well as having a frosting. Also, because the cake is physically bigger, it rises more, and can be made in to a layered result. Cake recipes can sometimes seem more complicated, too, because of their size compared to the bars or squares you might be making, but it is more a matter of size than anything. So that makes squares a bit of a better place for beginning bakers to start, just so they have less of everything to worry about as they prepare their dessert. Let your new baker try this pineapple recipe today and you take the day off from the kitchen. Enjoy it!
