Brushed some pineapple juice on the cake sponge , filled this cake with heavenly white chocolate mousse frosting and canned pineapple chunks . Crumb coated it with white chocolate mousse. Refrigerated for 30 minutes . Put a final coat of cream , placed in the fridge to set 20-30 minutes. And finished it off with sweetened coconut flakes. Pure bliss!
