Ingredients You’ll Need

To embark on this delightful culinary journey, here are the ingredients you’ll require:

  • For the Cake:

    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice
    • 1 cup finely chopped (or crushed) walnuts
    • 3/4 cup flaked coconut
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp vanilla
  • For Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting you will need:

    • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (let it come to room temperature for easier blending)
    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 1/8 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

Step-by-Step Instructions

Preparation of the Cake:

  1. Mix all of your dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Then mix in the eggs, vanilla and crushed pineapple with all of the juice.
  3. Pour into a well greased pan 9″ round or 9″X13″ rectangle
  4. Bake for about 35 – 40 minutes at 350 degrees (or until toothpick in the center comes out clean). You can serve it this way if you want…or you can kick it up a notch with a simple creamy whipped cream-cream cheese frosting!

Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting:

  1. In a small bowl beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form; set aside.In a large bowl combine cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
  2. Gently fold the cream cheese mixture and whipped cream together.
  3. I topped mine with a little toasted coconut.

Enhancements and Serving Suggestions

While the cake itself is a delight, adding some personal touches can elevate it even further. Consider sprinkling some toasted coconut or decorating it with fresh tropical fruits like sliced mangoes or kiwis. The presentation will not only add visual appeal but also enhance the overall flavor profile.

This Hawaiian Wedding Cake with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting pairs exquisitely with a variety of beverages. Whether it’s a classic cup of coffee, a tropical fruit punch, or a glass of sparkling champagne, this cake is a versatile delight that complements an array of drink choices.

Tips for Success

To ensure your Hawaiian Wedding Cake turns out perfectly:

  • Use high-quality ingredients for a richer flavor.
  • Ensure that the cake has completely cooled before frosting to prevent the frosting from melting.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator to maintain freshness.


A wedding cake holds significance beyond just being a sweet treat. It represents the love and joy of the occasion. The Hawaiian Wedding Cake with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting, with its tropical flavors and creamy richness, is a delightful choice to celebrate such a special moment in life.
