2 tablespoons orange liqueur or fresh orange juice
1 3-pound fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, quartered lengthwise and cut crosswise into thin slices

|Frosting Alternatives for Baking |
|Here's a tip from our registered dietitian: If you are eating frosted cakes, brownies, or cupcakes, skip the icing and try topping them with pureed fruit just before serving. Pureed pears or peaches are great options. Sprinkle with powdered sugar to complete the pretty picture. Alternatively, try pureed dried fruits with a bit of apple juice added. Figs or prunes work well.|
