Mascarpone Whipped Cream Frosting

Print Friendly and PDF
Truly the most decadent frosting ever.  I have been looking for a rich whipped cream frosting.  It is thick in consistency, so holds up especially well if you pipe it onto cupcakes.  You can use almond or vanilla flavoring.  I will definitely make this again as my family loved it.

1-1/2 cups heavy cream
2 (8 oz) tubs of mascarpone cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract or 3/4 tsp almond extract

Mix the mascarpone cheese, powdered sugar and almond extract until well blended.  Whip the heavy cream until stiff.  Fold the mascarpone mixture into the whipped cream.  Frost your cake, and keep it refrigerated until ready to serve.
