Hidden gem alert! There's a new bakery in Wahiawa that is simply divine. The beautiful handcrafted cakes and cupcakes might just be too pretty to eat. Pua Cake Studio is a sweet little bake shop that specializes in cakes and cupcakes with elegant buttercream flowers made by hand.
The owner, Jayme, started off her professional career inspired to practice fashion design... later she opted for something more reliable and received her psychology degree. Her passion for art and design continued to grow and flourish and as the years passed she began taking an interest in baking, After interning and shadowing some of the best bakers (here on Oahu and abroad) she studied the craft of buttercream flower making in Korea.
Now back in Hawaii, Pua Cake Studio was born and features quality baked goods, made from scratch and the most beautiful, intricate flower designs. Jayme makes and bakes a variety of things including cupcakes, cakes, cookies and macarons. The standout cupcakes are strawberry and lilikoi. The cake is dense yet fluffy and the inside of the cupcake is piped with delightful jelly or cream. The buttercream is outstanding as it is the perfect blend of butter and light sweet cream.
Pua Cake Studio in Wahiawa is open Thursday-Sunday 10am-6pm.
