Pineapple Cake Decoration:

Slice the Cake Sponge into 2 layers of equal thickness. Now moisten the cake halves with the sugar syrup to make it wet and soft. Take chilled whipped cream (not frozen) and beat it until it becomes fluffy. Now apply whipped cream over one slice, put pineapple chunks to make a layer and cover it with another cake sponge slice. Cover the cake sponge completely from outside with the whipped cream. Level the cream with a knife. Now fill a piping bag with whipped cream and decorate the cake nicely.
