Peninsula Grill Ultimate Coconut Cake®

Want to taste the cake featured on the TODAY Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda?


With its twelve towering layers of sweet, Southern perfection, the Peninsula Grill Ultimate Coconut Cake® caused a sensation when it first appeared on the menu in 1998. Praise from Bon AppétitSaveur, Martha Stewart LivingSouthern LivingThe New York TimesTODAY Show, and Vogue—in addition to a host of other esteemed culinary and travel media outlets, made the dessert famous.

Demand for whole cakes—an increasingly popular choice for wedding receptions—came pouring in, and a booming mail order business began. In 2012, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office certified the cake's national popularity when it awarded a trademark to the Peninsula Grill Ultimate Coconut Cake®.

We continue to serve slices of the now-iconic dessert to Peninsula Grill guests nightly; however, we also ship whole cakes across America via overnight delivery.

Infused with coconut and fresh vanilla, the show-stopping Ultimate Coconut Cake® weighs approximately 12 pounds and can be delivered to your doorstep tomorrow.
