Blue Hawaiian Bundt Cake for #BundtaMonth

The theme this month is Tropical March. I immediately went to pineapple and coconut as most of you would but wanted something different. Then I started thinking of cocktails and started to conjure up images of little umbrellas coming out of the drinks that I have seen  poolside. Hmmm, there are pina coladas that I love and daquiris of all flavors but then it came to me A BLUE HAWAIIAN BUNDT CAKE!!! Sure why not! That is crazy enough to work I thought. Get all the flavors of a Blue Hawaiian cocktail in a cake and then top it with a big layer of fluffy coconut seven minute frosting. I had visions of Elvis in his white pantsuit holding a piece of my cake. WOW, my mind went nuts with this!!

Anyway, so much fun, that’s what creating is all about. This cake turned out to be fabulous. I had never baked a blue cake before so I was anxious to frost and finally cut into it.

    LOL! Love your Blue Hawaiian, Tara. What a fantastic and delicious idea. My husband’s favorite color is blue (and Elvis officiated our Las Vegas wedding) so this would be a perfect anniversary cake. Thank you!

  2. Nancy @ gottagetbaked says

    Tara, this is so much fun! I love that you decided to go big and make your cake blue. It looks amazing – I can tell from the cut slice how incredibly moist it is inside. And the flavours – yum! Elvis would be extremely happy with this cake, as would I.

  3. Hezzi-D says

    I’ve made Blue Hawaiian cupcakes before and they are amazing. I love the flavors in this cake and I think it’s really neat that it looks all white until you cut into it. What a fun surprise!

  4. Holly says

    This is definitely a cake just waiting for a party!! What fun and I love all the thought that went into it. Sounds like it tasted great too!

  5. Kate | Food Babbles says

    Whoa!! Look at that!! That is absolutely gorgeous. What an incredibly creative idea and I bet the flavor was incredible. Love that you were really thinking outside the box this month and came up with such an amazing cake.

  6. Lora @cakeduchess says
