Wonderful recipe!!! In Texas the Guava juice is yellow (not pink like Hawaii brands) so I added 3-4 drops red food coloring to gel mixture. Used the strawberry cake mix. To lower fat and calories, I eliminated the cream cheese/cool whip frosting. Baked the cake in a 9x13 pan and spread on the cooled Guava gel..."onolicious". Best served cold. Thanks for helping me get back to my Hawaiian roots!!

Does this remind anyone of Zippy's guava cake? I tried getting the recipe from them but never could and now they have discontinued it due to lack of people buying it...but this is a great copycat recipe of it, thanks.
