Twice is nice for Kulu Kulu Cake

Kulu Kulu's chocolate cake was among the confections sampled at the grand opening of the patisserie's Eaton Square, Waikiki, location.

After a successful first year at Shirokiya at Ala Moana Center, Kulu Kulu Honolulu has opened its second patisserie at Eaton Square in Waikiki, on Oct. 15, with a blessing and cake for breakfast, sending guests back to work with a smile.

There's no way a person could not smile when facing a refrigerator case full of eye-catching treats in candy colors, and there was also no way any of us could walk out without trying more than one of the confections.

The boutique will continue to specialize in its Japanese-style pastries, including its popular light-as-air strawberry roll cake, made daily with airy pound cake, light cream and fresh strawberries.

Standouts include the Diamond Head Puff, a cream puff ode to Hawaii; the strawberry chiffon cake; and light, creamy soft soufflé cheesecake. If you're the sort who feels remorse when eating dessert, this non-dense cheesecake may ease your guilt.

Other popular confections include cakes made of mango, Okinawan sweet potato and Hawaii's seasonal fruits and flavors.
The newest Kulu Kulu Cake is at Eaton Square Shopping Center, 438 Hobron Lane #102. Call 808.753.0843. Open from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Visit

 The soft soufflĂ© cheesecake and strawberry chiffon cake were two opening day favorites.
