Paradise Cake

paradise cake sm

If there’s one cake to try in Los Angeles, it’s the King’s Hawaiian Paradise Cake. This cake is light and delicious and shockingly pretty when cut. King’s Hawaiian Bakery is oddly enough, no longer in Hawaii – but the Bakery as well as the main plant for their delicious sweet bread (Baked french toast, anyone?) is located in Torrance. This cake is popular for birthday parties and celebrations, and I’ve definitely eaten my fair share at family gatherings.

The layers are a light chiffon – the green is lime, the yellow is liliko’i (also known as passionfruit), and the pink is guava. Now the flavors sound strong, but far from it – they are light as air, and also topped with a whipped cream.It’s um…quite easy to eat a huge piece by yourself. Just sayin’.

The Kid’s birthday is coming up so I signed up and got a postcard for FREE MEAL for his birthday month. Score one for my wallet. Along with his meal came some singing as well as a heavenly piece of this here Paradise Cake.

I wanted to eat it all myself but it wasn’t MY birthday. The Kid ever so reluctantly shared his cake with all of us. The Baby really took advantage of his bite. Yikes. Guess I’ll just have to go back and get an entire cake just for ME…

    This may be the prettiest cake I’ve ever seen! I’ve only tried pandan chiffon cake before, I’d love a recipe for other flavours!

    whoa, never knew King’s Hawaiian has a bakery that sells cakes (I thought they only sold Hawaiian bread). That cake looks awesome and I love chiffon cakes. Thanks for the heads up.

  3. I asked my friend recently what her “coma” food was…what food I should hold in front of her to bring her out of a coma (you know, be prepared just in case). She was all about chocolate, but I want you to know it is THIS CAKE for me. – m

    How can I make the Paradise cake in the one tube pan without separation because I don’t want to make any filling. I want to make the 3 flavors and colors in one 10″ tube pan. Is it possible? JST

  15. justJENN says:

    You will get some overlap where the colors will run together. It’d be better to make separate cakes and slice and stack them.

    I just found your website from a google link. I have been trying to duplicate the paradise cake for years. I would be overjoyed if you would share the recipe with me. I couldn’t find the actual recipe on your site. Thanks

  19. hana says:

    I’m dying to have this recipe to make for my family and friends. Will you please send me a copy or direct me to where I can duplicate it.

  20. Mrs. Kreide says:

    Hello! I was excited to find your site as I have been searching for this recipe for years. My father passed away in 2009 after having a stroke at age 56. I have been missing him terribly and this is the cake that we would have at all of our special events. I love to bake and have yet to find a good recipe for this cake – I have improvised but I still seem to be missing something. Is there some place where I can get the recipe? I appreciate your time! Happy Baking To You!

  21. Lyn Bakes says:
