Hawaiian Cake Flavors

Many people think of a Hawaiian wedding cake as having pineapple, coconut and walnuts. However, there are many more options and flavor combinations available.

Other popular flavors include passion fruit, guava and Kona coffee. These flavors can be blended into the cake itself, or some bakeries offer fillings in these flavors.

Hawaiian Cake Decorations

Tropical flowers like orchids, birds of paradise and anthurium make beautiful cake decorations. If fresh tropical flowers are difficult to find in your area, consider having sugar flowers made for your cake.

Flowers can be used as a topper or as decorations on the cake itself. They can also be used to decorate your cake table to tie into the rest of your wedding flowers.

A cake topper can be used to finish off your Hawaiian cake. Look for beach or Hawaiian themed toppers to use alone or with your chosen flowers.
