For the Cake:

  • 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple with juice
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

For the Frosting:

  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (8 oz) container whipped topping (such as Cool Whip), thawed
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut (for topping)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (for topping, optional)


Step 1: Prepare the Cake

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. Mix Cake Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the yellow cake mix, crushed pineapple with juice, shredded coconut, chopped walnuts or pecans (if using), eggs, and vegetable oil. Mix until well combined.
  3. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and spread it evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Cool: Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool completely in the baking dish.

Step 2: Prepare the Frosting

  1. Beat Cream Cheese and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and granulated sugar together until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add Vanilla: Mix in the vanilla extract until well combined.
  3. Fold in Whipped Topping: Gently fold the thawed whipped topping into the cream cheese mixture until fully incorporated and smooth.

Step 3: Frost the Cake

  1. Frost the Cake: Once the cake is completely cooled, spread the whipped cream-cream cheese frosting evenly over the top of the cake.
  2. Add Toppings: Sprinkle the shredded coconut and chopped walnuts or pecans (if using) evenly over the frosting.

Step 4: Serve

  1. Chill and Serve: For best results, refrigerate the cake for at least 1 hour before serving to allow the frosting to set. Slice and serve. Enjoy your Hawaiian Wedding Cake with Whipped Cream-Cream Cheese Frosting!
