"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Cake:
1. Cream butter, gradually add sugar, beating well at medium speed of an electric mixer. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix after each addition. Stir in floverings.
3. Pour batter into 3 greased and floured 9-inch round cakepans. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes; remove from pans, and cool completely.

Pineapple Filling:
Combine sugar and flour in a small saucepan; add remaining ingredients. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened (about 3 minutes). Cool

Seven-Minute Frosting:
1. Combine all ingredients except vanilla in top of a large double boiler. Beat at low speed of an electric mixer 30 seconds or until blended.
2. Place over boiling water; beat constantly on high speed 7 minutes or until peaks form. Remove from heat. Add vanilla; beat 2 minutes or until frosting is thick enough to spread.

Assemble Cake:
Spread 1 layer with half of pineapple filling; sprinkle 1/2 cup coconut over filling. Repeat with next layer. Spread seven-minute frosting on top and sides of cake, and sprinkle with remaining coconut.
