Guava Cream Cheese Filling

"Match this up with a cupcake recipe like #213909--Almond Cupcakes. The cake taste is not overpowering, and this is just absolute creamy delight to hide inside and spread on top! Use this to top cupcakes, and top with toasted coconut or lime zest. Thank you to the Sew Darn Cute blog."

Ready In:




  • Put approximately 1/2 cup or so of guava paste in a mixing bowl, beat until the color lightens and the texture fluffs/creams up a bit (as opposed to the dense jelly-paste it starts as).
  • Add in 3-4 ozs. softened cream cheese and a squeeze of lime and beat until smooth.
  • Dump this mixture in a separate bowl then whip approx 1.5 cups heavy cream in a bowl until light and fluffy.
  • Fold in the guava-cream cheese mixture, fill a pastry bag and use to decorate cupcakes as desired.

    Excellent on whole wheat cake! Thanks!
    You HAVE to try this!!! I was looking to make something unique for a get together and this came to me. I made a plain sourcream white cake in 2 9inch round pans and filled and frosted it with this filling. The filling has a very delicate almost elegant taste. Not too sweet. I can't say enough about it except that my husband has requested I make one just for him tonight! I had no problem finding the guave paste in my local supermarket in the latin section very economical too You can make at least three recipes out of one tin. This is a recipe I'll still be making 20 years from now.

    Excellent cream cheese filling/frosting for cake! I could not stop eating the filling as I made this for the cake :P I used light cream cheese, and was just perfect to go on the Almond Cupcake recipe Recipe #213909. The flavor was a light delicate guava taste! So delicious! BTW, I was informed by the poster that you can purchase the guava paste at a Latin store, and sure enough, they had it and was pretty darn cheap for a good size tin. Thank you for posting, Pikake21 !!!!! =)
