Dominican Brown Sugar Cake with CARNATION® Frosting

9 Recipe Reviews |Rate this Recipe| 68 Saves

Covered with creamy Carnation Frosting and decorated with red guava shells, this festive Christmas cake is ideal for any holiday gathering. Canned guava shells may vary in color, so don’t be concerned if some are less brightly colored. For a simple—but still delicious—presentation, omit the frosting and guava shells and dust the top of the cake with powdered sugar just before serving.
