Cute Cakes

The modern cupcake evolves.

A lot of things are more fun to eat on a stick. Hot dogs, ice cream, even a chocolate-dipped slice of cheesecake.

So it’s no surprise that cupcake lollipops—a signature item from Cute Cakes Hawaii—have been such a decadent hit. Each mini chocolate cupcake is mounted on a stick and topped with either dark or white chocolate frosting. Adorable and convenient.

“We wanted people to be able to eat a cupcake on the go without too much of a mess,” says co-owner Kristie Mashino.

These cupcake lollipops ($2 each), are top sellers at Carousel Candyland in Kahala Mall, the Cupcake Boutique at Ward Warehouse and Chit Chat Sundries & Gifts in downtown.

Cute Cakes, which opened in March, offers other dainty treats, such as the Cutie Catwalk, and 10 mini cupcakes frosted to look like flowers served in a clear plastic lei container.

All Cute Cakes come in either vanilla or chocolate flavors topped with vanilla, chocolate, lemon drop, strawberry and—get this!—li hing mui buttercream frosting.
