Fairycakes is a mobile "cakery" roaming Honolulu, Hawaii. Eliza, Leona, and Lehua travel in their van ("Lola") feeding hungry customers with their latest creations. Their signature item is the "whoopie doo," a cake-like sandwich with cream filling that comes in various flavors. Whoopie doos may have originated on the East coast, but they have finally made their way to Hawaii!

NOTE: Apparently the people running Fairycakes live in Aiea. I've seen their van parked in the Halawa Heights area at night.

Menu at November's Eat the Street
At Eat the Street, the Fairycakes team was selling a Sample Platter. For $8, a person could get a mini lilikoi whoopie doo, a brownie bite, and a mini lemon square bar. I thought this was a great idea; a person who has never been to Fairycakes before can get a great introduction to some of the more popular menu items.

Sample Platter (Fairycakes)
(Brownie on the back left, lilikoi whoopie doo on the back right, lemon bar in the front)
I felt all three were home runs. The lemon square bar was nicely balanced, not overly sour or sweet. I really liked the macadamia nuts, adding that touch of Hawaii! The brownie bite was light and moist, and again, some nuts in there (pecans, perhaps?) added more dimension. The whoopie doo was my favorite of the trifecta. A professionally controlled touch on the lilikoi resulted in a soulful tropical experience.

You really can't go wrong with any of the desserts/snacks at Fairycakes, but be sure to get a whoopie doo! 8.5/10
