Kawaii Kravings: 6 Cupcakes To Get at Sugarlina Bakeshop

Frolic intern Lauren Kaneshiro's new video series shines light on irresistibly tasty and photo-worthy desserts.


Kawaii Kravings is a sugar-rush journey into O‘ahu’s world of delicious, Instagrammable sweets.



Sweet treats go straight to my heart, but my camera eats first if they’re worthy of a post on Instagram. Kawaii Kravings combines my love for sweet treats with the desire to photograph every beautiful dessert that crosses my path. In the first episode, I find myself at Pearl Kai Shopping Center for Sugarlina Bakeshop. This super cute bakery crafts many sweet treats but they are best known for exquisite and adorable cupcakes finished with rich buttercream frostings and toppings.
