How long do Happy Cakes last?
Our hand-made Happy Cakes can last for more than a month when stored in a cool, dry place. Once the packaging is opened, we recommend wrapping the remaining cake with plastic wrap and storing in the refrigerator. They last longer if frozen or refrigerated. All cakes are date-stamped.
What is "Peaberry" Kona Coffee?
When a coffee cherry ripens it produces two coffee beans, each flat on one side and curved on the other. However, roughly 2% of cherries never split into two beans, instead producing only one single rounded circular bean known as Peaberry.
Happy Cake Coffee extracts these round Peaberry beans and roasts them separately in small batches to ensure a perfect roast. The rounded beans will roll smoothly and thus roast more evenly producing a higher quality coffee. Roasted until the first crack in the bean, oils are retained creating this smooth rich full bodied coffee.
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 more than 40 years. With a strong shelf similar to a traditional fruitcake, Happy Cakes are dense cakes with candied fruit and nuts. However, these Hawaii-made treats lack the super sweet punch of fruitcake. In fact, some say that Happy Cakes are the Hawaiian version of a fruitcake.
