Grandmother's Pineapple Juiced Cake

This has been a favorite in my family for years and everyone requests it for their birthdays. My grandmother made a variation of this and I have tried to make a copycat of her recipe. Makes a really messy cake sometimes, but oh how juicy and moist! It is a basic yellow cake that is soaked with pineapple juice, then filled with icing and fruit between layers before icing all over and topping with more fruit. It has taken me many tries to have finesse at it so it may not turn out too pretty on first attempts, but it will still taste amazing! The cake is a dense recipe but needs to be to stand up while soaked with juice. I also don't recommend a richer buttercream icing because it competes with all the other rich flavors going on. Be sure to store cake in fridge!
