A Flip Floppy Hawaiian Christmas Cake with Nina Notaro

Cake created by Nina Notaro of Cake Studio

I can thank my husband David for introducing me to his favorite holiday movie… National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Honestly I was more of a nostalgic White Christmas and Christmas in Connecticut… kind of gal 🙂


There’s a scene in the movie where Chevy Chase is dreaming about his new pool… and this iconic Hawaiian Christmas song is featured. (It’s on YouTube…just type in Mele Kalikimaka).

So for the past 16 years we’ve had a Hawaiian Open House in December, because darn its freezing cold here in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada. We ask family and friends to wear their favorite Hawaiian shirt, indulge in a Hawaii feast and watch this holiday movie together and enjoy your Hawaiian holiday! (and the tunes of ♪ ♫ Mele Kalikimaka ♫  ♪) Aloha!!
