· Powdered sugar, for garnish

For guava cream:
· 14oz. whole guavas in syrup

Process until smooth then strain the mixture into a bowl. Discard the seeds and set aside. For the guava compote, bring guavas, one cup water, both the sugars, butter, cinnamon and vanilla to a boil in a heavy medium saucepan.

To assemble the pound cake, place a slice of pound cake onto a serving plate; drizzle with the guava cream and top with a spoonful of guava compote. Before serving, garnish with blackberries, or fruits of your choice and dust with some powdered sugar.
