Pina colade is a sweet rum-based cocktail made with rum,coconut cream and pineapple juice.It had been the official beverage of Puerto Rico since 1978.For October month Meena of Chettinad fiesta suggested this pina colade cake for the eggless baking group.First i thought of skipping off then decided to do cupcakes of it.Actual frosting must be coconut cream cheese frosting i replaced it with whipped cream frosting.
