To prepare the pineapples cut in a circle about 2 inches above the base WITHOUT cutting the core of the fruit. If the pineapple does not stand strait cut a small portion at the bottom to have a flat base. Next, cut to remove the fruit from above the base, leaving only the core representing the trunk of the tree. Finally, empty the base of the fruit to leave a bowl like bottom in which will be placed the fruit salad.

Step 3: Making the fruit salad

For this step simply prepare some fruit salad with any desired fruit. (you can use the leftover pineapple)
Peal the fruit and dice them to small pieces and put in a separate bowl. Add the cinnamon and vanilla sugar and mix all of the ingredients.
