Mascarpone Icing

This mascarpone icing recipe is great if you’re looking for a different icing not using cream cheese. It’s really easy to make and the hardest thing about this recipe is not eating it before you put it on the cake.

Mascarpone Icing

Mascarpone Icing Cooking Tips:

I like to place my beaters and bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes before making my whipped cream. The cold bowl and beaters shorten the time needed to make the whipped cream.

Icing is enough for 6 large cupcakes, 18 regular cupcakes or an 8 x 8 cake.

Double the recipe if you need more.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: Add icing to an airtight container and keep in the fridge for 14 days max.
