Happy Birthday Mr. P
Today is my husband’s birthday and I simply couldn’t not make him birthday cupcakes. I made his favorite cupcake recipe but added a bit of Island flavor. I used a vanilla cupcake recipe from Food and Wine and stuffed it with a guava filling and topped it with my favorite vanilla buttercream then dipped it in coconut, simply divine!
I made the guava filling by placing about 1/2 cup of guava paste with 2-3 tbsp of water in the microwave on high for 1 minute. It should have the consistency of jam or preserves. I cut a hole in top of the cupcake and filled the space with guava and replaced the top. Then you frost as normal. Its a cute surprise to bite into a seemingly normal cupcake and find a ooey gooey guava center. I love this combination of guava and coconut, very complimentary and tropical!
Very cute. I love that combo!
