The pineapple rings symbolize how Catherine was espoused to Christ by a nuptial ring that was only visible to Saint Catherine. In addition, the pineapples sink delicately into golden brown sugar, not being completely in view just like the invisible wedding ring.
We used a simple pineapple boxed cake mix and added rings of pineapple and halved Marciano cherries. Next time, we'll need to grease our 9x13 pan before pouring melted butter and brown sugar into the pan. We forgot to grease the pan and the cake did not flip as easily onto the awaiting pure white platter. Any favorite upside down pineapple cake recipe will work, just be sure to have extra cherries for everyone to sample.
The night ended with watching Saint Catherine of Siena (My Catholic Family)."
St. Catherine of Siena, pray for us!Pin It
