Pina Colada Cake

Pina Colda Cake - by

School is out, summer is here and it’s time for vacation!  I don’t have any beach vacation plans… but with this delicious Pina Colada Cake I can enjoy a tropical flavored treat right at home.

I’ve shared my recipe for Pina Colada Cupcakes before, and have been wanting to make a cake version for quite a while.  I’m so happy I finally made it!  This cake is moist, rich and flavorful.

I’m guest posting over on Tidy Mom today and sharing the recipe and all the details on this Pina Colada Cake.  Head on over and say hello!

  20. hi!
    I am Viju.. I am from Jaipur city(India). I love to bake cakes and cup cakes…but only problems is regarding colours. I got only liquid colours here and while using them to get exact colour for icing makes the taste very bad….can u pls suggest me on how to work with the colours…

    thanking you

  21. Fantastic cake. Made it this past weekend for a friends’ birthday and it was a huge hit!

  22. I made this cake for my husbands birthday on the weekend and it was beyond delicious!! By far my new favourite cake. Thanks for the great recipe!!

  23. You were right, your treats are simply GLORIOUS!
    I made this wonderful cake this week for my kindergartener’s graduation party and it was a Huge success with the grown ups! So moist, and delicious! And let’s not talk about the frosting, OMG! The only issue I had its that in living in Southern California I know its always warm and sunny so the cake spent a lot of time in the fridge, so it got a bit hard, but still Delicious.
    Thank you for this great recipe, I feel like I know you, all the recipes I’ve made from your blog have been delicious!
    Oh, and your chocolate cupcakes recipe it’s the same recipe I always use! Isn’t that funny? I told you, it’s like I know you 😉
    Have a great weekend !

  25. HIhi, i was gonna make this in the afternoon for my bosses’ dad’s birthday and i was wondering if i could use coconut cream instead of coconut extract and heavy cream. i live in trinidad, so there are a lot of coconuts available at my disposal and id prefer to use it, rather than an extract. Do you think it will work?

  26. can this cake be made without the rum? if so what would i sub?

  27. I love pina colada. It’s one of my favourite cocktails. I made a pina colada inspired cake but I want to try this layered version. Looks sooo yum

  28. so pretty. sounds delish!

  29. I will be making this cake on Thursday for a 94th birthday and my question is…how much oil? Your cupcake recipe calls for 1 cup and this cake recipe calls foe 3/4 cup…I printed the cake recipe from tidymom when you were visiting…love making your 3D cookie boxes…I am going to do a 3D gingerbead boy for the holidays…

  30. Hello, the recipe looks awesome, but I wanted to know what kind of flour should I use?
