Reviews for Hawaiian Wedding Cake
"Light & tasty. Easy to make."
"Made this for my daughter's 6th birthday which was a Hawaiian theme. All of the adults loved it but some of the kids were just "so so" with it. I would definitely make this again as it was quite good and knowing that it is light made all of us adults who are watching our weight feel less guilty about indulging."
"I have a question, wana make this cake today ...do i mix in the ingredients from the bak of the box or only bittermilk egg and eggwhites?"
"THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS RECIPE---ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!"
"ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!! Thank you for the recipe! I made it for Easter dinner today--the only thing I changed was I upgraded the lo cal to regular whipped cream and cream cheese, pudding and pineapple with sugar(regular). I thought about changing the buttermilk to the pineapple juice but left it alone--the cake was extremely moist---VERY GOOD!! It is already requested for NEXT WEEK it was so good!!!"
"This is so far the best cake I have ever tasted and the directions were so simple."
"I made this cake for a church Luau Party twice, everybody loved it, there were no leftovers."
"The instructions for the cream cheese, milk and pudding are not complete if you are not careful you will end up with a huge mess and wasted ingredients!! Thanks for being so clear."
"This was an easy, tastey cake. My grandkids were coming so I left out the pineapple (picky eaters). I had some coconut leftover so I sprinkled that on half the cake. Everyone raved about it - I think I'll try it with a chocolate cake mix next."
"I made this yesterday and this cake is simply delicious. It is so light and so easy to prepare.thanksTaste of home subscriber for so many years. L. Hebert 3/6/09Portsmouth R.I."
"Oh my gosh!! This is very good cake. Thank youCA"
"I made this cake and shared it with a friend. We both thought it was absolutely delicious and I will definitely make it again. Next time I might try using the pineapple juice as someone else suggested instead of the buttermild. It is moist and creamy and absolutely delicious.."
"I made this cake for Memorial paryt. Everyone fell in love with it. I did use the pineapple juice instead of bettermilk. Will definately made it again.Sebringred"
"To add more pineapple flavor: simply replace the buttermilk with the juice drained from the pineapple. Add water, if needed to equal the 1-1/4 cup. Fold the crushed pineapple into pudding mixture. Whipped topping, if desired, sprinkle with coconut and chopped nuts, ( macadamia) for a twist.PS.Use whole eggs."
"First of all, how miniscule a piece of cake do you get by getting 18 servings out of a 9x13 cake?!I made this recipe for Mother's Day and was less than impressed. I realize it's a lower fat recipe, but I found the cake itself to be very, very dry. I did not overbake it as at 25 mins, the toothpick came out a bit sticky; baked for 5 mins more. Used brand-name ingredients (Duncan Hines, Phil. cream cheese, Jello pudding, Dole pineapple; Cool Whip, Baker's Coconut). There was no distinct pineapple flavor as I expected, and the pudding/cream cheese layer offered up not much flavor either. The first thing my husband said after eating his piece of cake was plain and simple: I don't like it. I'm sorry this turned out the way it did, and I'm very doubtful I'll make it again."
"this sounds so refreshing. Will give it a try"
"Just because he has heart disease doesn't mean he can't eat it, mine does too but the key is moderation as his cardioligist says " Don't eat the whole damn cake!!!!"Marilyn"
"Re: HAWAIIAN WEDDING CAKEI have been making this cake for many years. When I was working and we would have a potluck everyone of my co-workers ask for this cake. Also I have been ask to make it for summer wedding receptions. It is so delish. I all ways say pray over it and then the calories don't count."
"If the cake is too rich, too fattening, too high in cholesterol, obviously not a bowl of sugar-free gelatin, for crying out loud.. DON'T MAKE IT! I made it, my family loved it and you can bet I'll be doing it again. Worrying over what might happen, what could happen will also lead you to an early grave. This is a lovely recipe and I appreciate you sharing it. Many thanks!"
"Where did she say "Healthy"? I noticed that she said she made a few changes to reduce fat and calories, and she did do that. So what exactly is the problem? This is a delicious cake and I'll make it again, probably soon!"
"This is not an healthy receipe at all. The cake mixes in the stores have hydrogenated fats in them and so does the frozen fat-free whipped topping. I have looked high and low for non-hydrogenated whipped toppings but they do not exist. I don't allow anything that is hydrogenated into my kitchen. My husband has heart problems and he wouldn't be able to eat this."

"cut it into squares with a knife"
"How do you cube the reduced-fat cream cheese?"
"I like this recipe. However I like to make the pineapple layer the first layer on the cake and then add the other toppings. The pineapple juices gives the cake a wonderfully moist texture and the other toppings add just the right touch. So great recipe but try switching the layers around to make it even better!"
"Made this several hours ago and it's great. Fragrance in house is super; taste is great. Maybe just a bit too much pineapple on top but that's just a personal choice."
"Sounds interesting but the link doesn't work for me..."
