Have you tried with guava puree in a white butter cake? maby adding some coulour also?

I havent made guava cake yet, but I am thinking of making a mango cake and was thikning of useing mango puree in the cake instead of only juice.

and for the filling i will use only vanilla buttercreame, other fruits will overtake the guava/ mango taste.

hope this is of some help.

I saw in FN challenge... one of the competitors was from Hawaii and he gave for his taasting a guava cake with guava filling... looked amazingly appetizing (sp?) He stated that the guava flavor on the cake needs to be subtle but the filling was sich and creamy and u could appreciate the guava flavor... they loved it...

I have made yellow cake with guava filling... and I love it! I love the guava taste... if u do findout, please share with us... I want to do a guava cake also...

the filling I use is the dawn sleeve fillings...

I used this chiffon cake recipe and used guava instead of the strawberry. It was very light and tasty, although you may find that a chiffon cake has a slightly different texture to what people are sometimes used to in the US.

If it gets blocked the search for use real butter strawberry chiffon cake

Guava doesnt have a very strong color though so you may choose to use a little color
