Can the liquids in a cake be exchanged for another form of liquid without damaging the receipe? I want to substitute water in a mix with the reserved pineapple juice that I have so that I can make a pineapple, coconut cake instead of just a coconut one. Thanks for help.

"Sometimes".

The technicalities of swapping things around in baking can be really complicated - it is a science, and you can mess up the balance very quickly. Cake mixes, however, are a little more forgiving.

But - I'm a bit of a daredevil. If it were me, I'd go ahead and try in and see what happens icon_smile.gif I just don't take it personally if I try something and it doesn't quite work out.

Great! I thought that I could but was not really sure. I am gonna try it. I'm gonna doctor this mix real good & see what happens. Feel like the mad cake scientist sometimes! Wish me luck.
