Classic Hummingbird Cake with Pineapple Flowers and Hummingbird Cookies

Hummingbird Cake

Today I am introducing the famous hummingbird cake to you. There is a simple reason for that. It has to do with the fact that I love animals and birds in particular. Since I was born in Uruguay in Latin America, I had the privilege of watching these tiny birds close to our house. I find it extremely fascinating how these birds need to constantly eat as otherwise they wouldn’t survive. Every 15 minutes they need to drink nectar. Since these birds are so pretty, I decided that my cake definitely also need hummingbirds on the outside, clearly displayed. So I figured that I would dry some pineapple slices and use them as flowers the hummingbirds would be drinking from. The hummingbirds are made from sugar cookies.

Because, who doesn’t like hummingbird cake?
