Simple Guava Frosting

This frosting goes amazing with strawberry cupcakes or just out of the bowl. It is super simple too. If you make a cake I like to use this frosting along with my cream cheese frosting. So lick smacking good.
The great thing is that it is super simple to make. This recipe with frost 24 cupcakes or fill and frost a 6 inch two tiered cake.

1/2 can of frozen strawberry guava concentrate (from the frozen juice section)
1-2 Tbs of cornstarch
 5.1 oz instant vanilla pudding mix
32 oz Whipping Cream

1) In a small saucepan melt down juice concentrate over medium high heat.
2) Stir in cornstarch with a wire wisk. Continue to stir until it thickens. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. 
3) Mix together instant pudding mix and whipping cream in a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer for about 5 minutes. Let it sit for a little while and it should thicken up a bit more. You want it thick enough to pipe like a frosting. (Beware of over-mixing. have you ever made butter from whipping cream? That's what happens if you over mix)
4) Once guava concentrate mixture has completely cooled to room temperature (or cooler if you stuck in in the refrigerator to speed up the process) mix it into the pudding whipped cream mixture until it is completely incorporated.
