    The Hawaiian Wedding Cake, submitted by Olene Grieshop, makes my whole body happy! The only thing wrong is it is gone too fast! Everyone in my home goes 'crazy' every time I bake it. Ms. (?) Grieshop did a wonderful thing by deciding to share this one! I tried English walnuts the first time, but did not like it as well as the black walnuts in the second one. Perhaps M. Grieshop should add a suggestion to the recipe as to which nuts work better.....? However, this 'typo' in no way detracts from the easiness and quickness experienced with baking this cake. Thank you, M. Grieshop! Doris Rogers-Ripoll, Brandon, Florida (to the east of Tampa Bay)  -  15 Mar 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I was so excited to find this recipe on here. My cousin Connie used to make this for us years ago and it always got raves. It brought back many fond memories. The only additions I made were to add 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. vanilla, and DEFINITELY is best with cream cheese frosting. I use the 'Cream Cheese Frosting II' recipe here on allrecipes and it makes plenty to frost this with. I also sprinkled some toasted coconut on top of the frosted cake. This is so incredibly moist and a snap to make. It feeds a large crowd, they will all oooh and ahhh, and you will go home with an empty cake pan. Great for Hawaiian themed parties or potlucks. This is a must do and also very economical to make.  -  31 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Recipe was very easy and the finished product so moist...but it seemed to lack flavor. Next time I might add a little coconut or almond flavoring.  -  13 Mar 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
