I made a pineapple cake and put coconut pudding in the cake. The buttercream was coconut flavored. It's my daughters fav.

I just recently made margarita cupcakes. I just used the margarita frozen drink mix in place of the liquid in the cake mix and the tiniest taste of sweetened lime juice in the buttercream frosting. I have also used the Coco Lopez cream of coconut in my cake batters. It gives the really good taste of coconut without the texture of coconut that so many people seem to dislike.

I have mixed pineapple cake mix w/ orange cake mix before and it was a very nice flavor. Don't remember what I frosted it with....

umm.. what kind of tropical fruit you looking for? Is this for a child? Because you can always substitiute Tropical fruit juice in place of your water in your cake. THen just add your extra pineapple etc. If you are looking for intense flavor.

The reason I asked if it was for a child, is you can add Hi C punch in place of water. and for that extra kick, you can even add a HI C cool aid pack to your cake mix too. icon_surprised.gificon_biggrin.gif

I agree! Have you looked in the "gourmet flavors" post for the WASC variations? There are several "tropical" cakes to choose from.

I think, pineapple, kiwi, mango. Because I am allergic to coconut, it never even entered my mind. icon_lol.gif
