The South's Best Coconut CAKE

Baked with Love in Charleston

On February 14, 1997, history was made in the heart of Charleston, S.C., the fabled Southern city renowned for its beauty, culture, and cuisine.

That evening in the heart of the Historic District, hidden amidst a lush garden illuminated by flickering lanterns, a restaurant called Peninsula Grill opened its doors for the second-ever night of service.

The pop of Champagne bottles sounded throughout the night, and a symphony of other merry sounds filled the velvet-wrapped dining room as the sold-out crowd of local “who’s who” congratulated the restaurant’s opening team, which included several vanguards of Charleston’s acclaimed current culinary scene.

A Surprise Dessert

Shortly after 9 p.m., a towering cake emerged from the pastry kitchen. Conversations paused mid-sentence, and a ripple of curiosity swept through the dining room as guests turned toward the special dessert to see what would happen next.

With perfectly choreographed precision, the Peninsula Grill servers paraded in the dining room carrying beautifully plated slices of cake standing 12-layers tall and enveloped in golden-toasted coconut. The evening’s sweet finale earned an enthusiastic ovation, and the rest is, as they say, history.

Among the Most Popular Cakes in Southern History

The Ultimate Coconut Cake was a certified instant sensation. It has appeared on Peninsula Grill’s menu ever since its 1997 Valentine’s Day debut, and guests of the restaurant continue to order it nightly. The cake’s popularity led to a booming mail-order business with whole cakes delivered nationwide year-round. Every year by mid-November, the volume of mail order cakes is enough to fill a large FedEx truck each week through the end of the year.
