A friend of mine brought this wonderful dessert to a gathering of friends, welcoming a newcomer to the islands.  It brought a sea of laughter because it simply looked like an over the top “everything Hawaiian” dessert. But the laughter stopped as we all took our first bite!!

Anytime of the year, this Pina Colada Cake topped with rich coconut glaze and flecked with pieces of pineapple is a tropical treat.
