Tropical Pineapple Rum Cake

Chop the mixed fruit and set aside. Using an electric mixer, blend the eggs and the pudding mix in a large bowl at low speed. Let set for 5 minutes. Add the cake mix, water, and vegetable oil to the egg and pudding mix and blend with an electric mixer at low speed for about 30 seconds. Stir in the mixed fruit. Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-inch bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring water and sugar to a boil in a heavy duty saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil without stirring for 7 minutes. Remove from heat and add rum; return to a boil for 2 minutes, syrup should be slightly thick.
Invert cake onto round platter: using a toothpick or wooden skewer, poke holes all over the cake. Slowly pour syrup over cake. Allow cake to cool completely before glazing.
For glaze; combine powdered sugar, vanilla, pineapple juice, and milk. Beat until smooth and creamy, adding a little more milk if necessary. It should be a little runny. Drizzle over a cooled cake.

served egg whites & Grand Marnier until very stiff (using as electric mixer on high).  Add sugar, 1tsp at a time (beat well after each tsp).  Pile meringue on top starting from the edge to the center, making certain that the meringue touches the pastry on all sides to prevent it from shrinking.  Smooth it with the back of a spoon in a light cir-
cular manner.  To brown, place on top shelf of oven & bake until golden brown.  about 2 minutes.
