Aloha friends! Summer is officially here!!! It’s time to fire up those BBQs, break out the swim suits, and lavish in all the amazing food drinks summer has to offer. One of our favorite flavor combinations comes all the way from the island of Hawaii. With its lush climate, ample sunlight, and fertile soil yield a brilliant amount of fresh produce ready to go into our cupcakes! So with that, we bring you our Tiki Room Cupcakes–Perfect for any luau, hot summer night, or day at the beach…just don’t drop it in the sand.
These little beauties consist of a Fresh Pineapple-Toasted Coconut-Macadamia Cake, filled with Fresh Banana Cream and topped with our famous Whipped Vanilla Buttercream and a Toasted Coconut-Macadamia Coat. We added a little more richness to the cake by substituting regular milk for pure, wholesome coconut milk.
Coconut milk is wonderfully delicious and holds many health and beauty benefits including, healthier skin and hair, stronger bones and an overall healthy immune system. For more benefits and uses check out Livestrong.com
On a side note: We can’t take all the credit for this. One of our client’s wanted to surprise her boyfriend with a cake they had in Hawaii over a year ago and asked if we could make something similar to it. We, of course, were more than happy to oblige. Here’s what Shawn, the birthday boy had to say, ” It was an amazing Cake!!! Thank you so much, it definitely brought back memories of Hawaii while I ate it. “
Well, you’re welcome Shawn and happy belated birthday!
