I'm gonna git you sucka!

I have 10 more minutes on these cupcakes as I begin this post.  These dern cupcakes that may or may not put a few bucks in my pocket.  P can't even stand the smell of the guava nectar or paste.  I actually think it smells tropical and could see adding a ton of vodka and ice and calling it a day.  hee hee.  But that's not an option, so Guava cupcakes it will be.

The cool thing about Guava is its one of those foods that is popular in Mexico, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Columbia, Cuba and it is a 'super' fruit.  Although I don't think mixed with as much corn syrup as  with this paste.  Oh well, if its interesting, I'll find a way to make it healthier.  This recipe came from for a cake.
Rookie mistake #12,353 - always read the reviews before you try a new recipe.  This is less of a light cupcake and more of a spiced carrot cake taste which is more dense.  Just a little different than I expected.  Still good.
Okay, I still have the frosting that might save the whole thing. I'm doing a cream cheese with guess what, that's right guava nectar flavor and a splash of lemon juice. Plus I always test my baked goods piping hot, which is not always a good thing.  Best to let it ride until the end.

Okay, its the end.  I like these!  They aren't as 'light and fluffy dreamy, eat this and suck it' good as I had anticipated for my ultimate revenge plan.  See previous post where a coworker said he would trade my brownies for these amazing guava cupcakes that some girl makes there.  Them's fightin' words!  Well I wasn't havin' any of that nonsense, so I wanted these to be a-mazing.  They are really good but I don't think they'll get us the double-wide trailer on the lake, lets just say.
