good cake. If you want a pink cake, you need to add 4-6 drops of red food coloring, esp. if you use the yellow cake mix. The Guava topping taste exactly like Dee-lite Bakeries.

Having Memories of living in Hawaii in the late 50s where I fell in love with the taste of Guava. Now I live in the Colorado Rocky Mountains and can only dream of Fresh Guava! Looking forward to following you.

So...if we were to substitute the guava juice for say mango juice, would it work out the same? (with the exception of taste of course)
