Comments: Lots of work but oh so ono! Well, I finally tried the haupia cake recipe I submitted, and it turned out pretty well. I just wanted to add a few notes to it: The recipe is enough to make a single layer 9x13 cake. So to make layers, double the recipe or use smaller pans proportionately. Chill the haupia filling before spreading. I didn't and it kinda gooped all over. If you chill it you can make the filling much thicker (both in consistency and dimension). Chill the frosting before spreading too. If your lower layers aren't flat, use a knife to cut it flat.

The filling doesn't sit on a rounded cake well.
