Cake opinions?

Hey guys! I'm making a cake soon...It will be like a pineapple upside down cake, except that instead of taking it out of the pan, I'll just leave it in there and frost the top.

Here's the idea:

The bottom layer, is of course, pineapple chunks and a thick gooey caramel sauce (which I'll acheive hopefully by mixing a bunch of brown sugar, margarine, and pineapple juice together).

The cake itself will be an ordinary cake mix, but instead of making it with 1 1/4 cups water, I'll be using 1 1/4 cup pina colada juice.

The frosting, I haven't picked a flavour yet. Either vanilla, pina colada, or rum flavour. Then I'll top it with toasted shredded coconut.

Okay here's the decision: I'm torn between two ideas for egg replacer. One is simply using King's Mill Egg Replacer powder...the other idea is to mash up a banana, and use the banana (in addition to a bit of the egg replacer powder). So....should I use a banana? Yay or nay? I think the extra fruitiness might be fine, but mum thinks it might detract from the overall pina colada theme I seem to have going on with it.
