We are having a Luau party at work, and I was wanting to make a cake that has a tropical feel to it, something like banana, pineapple or pina colada, something along those lines. didn't know if anyone has a good recipe or cake combination they would like to share.
This one gets tons of raves:
Tropical Dream Cake
1 pkg White cake mix
2 c Pineapple sherbet, melted
1 small pkg banana instant pudding (I used sugar-free)
2 (6 oz) containers Yoplait coconut cream yogurt
1/2 t Lorann Pina Colada flavoring (still great results without this flavoring)
1/2 t coconut extract
1/2 t banana extract
Combine everything at once; mix 2 mins. Bake according to pan size at 325.
12 oz white almond bark (or chocolate)
16 oz neufetchel cheese
Â½ t LoRann Pinepple or Pina Colada
1 c whipped Frostin Pride
Melt chocolate and blend with cream cheese. Add flavoring. Fold in Frostin Pride.
Coconut Cream Cake
1 box white cake mix
Â½ c milk
Â½ c cream of coconut (Coco-Loco)
Â½ c butter, melted
2 t coconut extract
Â¾ c flaked coconut
Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Bake at 325 degrees until done. (45 minutes for 6" round cakes)
Wow, this sounds delish, I have to try it. I have an order for a Luau cake in June but I am not waiting until then my mouth is watering already Thanks for sharing
