Pina Colada Cake Bites are super easy to make. You start with pound cake. You can make your own using our Sour Cream Pound Cake recipe OR if you don’t feel like baking you can buy one at the grocery store. You’ll also need Cream of Coconut, powdered sugar, dried coconut, fresh pineapple, and maraschino cherries. The Cream of Coconut and powdered sugar make a delicious icing and the fresh pineapple brightens everything up. It’s all the flavors of a pina colada in one (ok maybe two) delicious bite!
How to Make Pina Colada Cake Bites:
- Cut your pineapple into cubes and cut your pound cake into cubes that are about the same size.
- Mix the Cream of Coconut with the powdered sugar to make a thick icing.
- Dip each pound cake piece into the icing and then dip it into the toasted coconut pieces.
- Place a pineapple cube on top of the pound cake cube, top with a cherry and put a skewer through all three.
Can I Make Pina Colada Cake Bites Ahead of Time?
This is one recipe I wouldn’t make ahead of time. The juice from the pineapple would make the pound cake get soggy if it sat overnight. You can however cut your pound cake up and dip it in the icing and coconut. Store these in an airtight container overnight. You can also cut your pineapple up and store it overnight. That way on the day of the party all you have to do is assemble everything and you’re ready to go!
