Add dry ingredients, mixing at medium speed for 5 minutes. Whip egg whites until triple in volume. Slowly add 1 1/4 cups sugar and cream of tartar. Whip egg white mixture until soft peaks form. Fold guava mixture into egg white mixture and mix until smooth. Pour batter into two 9-inch rounds (ungreased) and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until done. Remove from oven, immediately turn cake over onto a rack. Cool with pan in place. Place in freezer until firm, then fill and ice with Guava Icing (work fast, as icing will melt). Fill center of top with well-chilled Guava Claze.

Dissolve cornstarch in water.. Bring guava juice to a quick boil. Stir in cornstarch. Simmer until mixture thickens. Chill well before topping cake.
