Here are some answers to our more frequently asked questions from our customers. Click below and if your question has still not been answered, then please call us on 808-922-1957 and we will be happy to try and help.
How long do Happy Cakes last?
Our Happy Cakes are hand-made, and can last for well over a month when kept in a cool, dry place. They can last even longer if frozen or refrigerated. The cake holds moisture well at lower temperatures and tastes great chilled.
Once the packaging is opened, we suggest wrapping the remaining cake with plastic wrap and storing in the refrigerator.
All cakes come with a ‘Best Before ‘ date.
Where can I buy Happy Cakes?
Can you ship Happy Cakes?
YES! Since the 1960’s, we have been shipping our cakes all over America and the world!
We are lucky to have customers in every U.S. State and also in most continents in the world.
Shipping options are:
USPS – The United States Postal Service’s Priority Mail has slowed somewhat this year and usually takes 5-7 business days.
FedEx 2-Day Service is also available for those needing a more speedy delivery.
Can I travel on an airplane with my Happy Cakes?
Yes! Happy Cakes are made with pineapple that has been cooked or “glaced,” and pass all Hawaii state agricultural laws and TSA requirements. It’s no problem to clear both of the screening checks at Honolulu International Airport to take your cakes home with you. Strong and durable, Happy Cakes are perfect for travel!
Is a Happy Cake a fruitcake?
This is a great question that food critics and experts have debated and pondered over for more than fifty years.
The Happy Cake has a strong shelf life like a traditional fruit cake, and it is a dense cake with candied fruit and nuts.
However the Happy Cake lacks the super sweet punch of fruit cake and it is so much more moist than fruit cake!
Some say it is the Hawaiian version of a fruit cake.
What are the main ingredients of the cake?
The three main ingredients in our Happy Cakes are pineapple, macadamia nuts and coconut.
Are Rum, Brandy and any other alcoholic beverages used as ingredients?
No. We don’t use any rum, brandy, or other types of alcohol in our Happy Cakes.
However, many of our customers tell us that they love their Happy Cakes served with a little liquor or rum drizzled over the top. Woooo Hoooo!
What are the potential allergens of the cake? Do you provide a variant without them?
Potential allergens in our cakes would be dairy products and nuts.
Sorry but at this time we are unable to offer any gluten free cakes.
