Mascarpone Buttercream

Filed under: dessert — Becky @ 3:30 pm

I made up some chocolate cupcakes for the kids, and then realized that I didn’t have any frosting! So I decided to experiment and see if I could come up with a buttercream-type frosting that wasn’t overly sweet like American Buttercream usually is.

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
8 ounces Mascarpone cheese, room temperature
2 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
Using a hand mixer, beat buffer and cheese until light and creamy. Add sugar and continue beating until smooth.

This doesn’t seem as thick as normal buttercreams do, but it’s so yummy!! If you want to thicken it up some, you can add more powdered sugar until you find the right consistency for you.
