Cupcake Ideas for a Hawaiian Themed Party
Cupcakes are a cheap and easy-to-make alternative to cake at a party. (cupcakes image by Kimberly Reinick from

Cupcakes are a cost-effective and less messy alternative to a sheet cake for a party, making them an easy dessert to serve, especially if children will be in attendance. For a Hawaiian-themed party, cupcakes inspired by tropical fruits and topped off with Hawaiian-inspired flair are the perfect way to give your party a sweet ending.

Pineapple Aloha Cupcakes

Add extra flavour and Hawaiian style to a plain white cake mix by adding a few drops of artificial pineapple flavouring to the cake batter. Add a few drops of yellow food colouring to brighten the cake mix, and green food colouring to a white, cream cheese frosting. Bake the cupcakes in Hawaiian-inspired wrappers and place three chunks of fresh pineapple and a cherry on top of each cake.

Hawaiian Flower Cupcakes

Bring the spirit of Hawaii to your cupcakes by decorating them with edible lei flowers. Use a chocolate cake batter to make the cakes, and frost them with a white, cream cheese frosting. Cut Hawaiian flower shapes out of brightly coloured fondant and place one flower on top of each cupcake.

Mango Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes

Mix a few drops of artificial mango flavouring and orange food colouring into a plain white cake mix. Bake the cupcakes in brown or white wrappers. Frost each cupcake with chocolate frosting, and cover the frosting with fresh coconut shavings.

Surfing Safari Cupcakes

Showcase the sport of surfing with vibrant blue cupcakes for your Hawaiian-themed party. Add a few drops of blue food colouring to a white cake mix and a white, vanilla-flavoured frosting. Bake the cupcakes in brightly coloured wrappers and place a miniature plastic surfboard topper on each cake. You can buy both inexpensively at a party supply store.

Strawberry Banana Sunrise Cupcakes

Combine these two classic flavours to create a festive batch of cupcakes suitable for your Hawaiian party or luau. Use a strawberry cake mix for the batter, and add a few drops of artificial banana flavouring and yellow food colouring to a white, vanilla frosting. Frost the cupcakes and decorate with brightly coloured candy sprinkles.
