  • Place the mascarpone in the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment and start beating on medium speed. While beating, add vanilla followed by the powdered sugar. Scrape sides and continue beating until light and fluffy. DO NOT OVERMIX as it will cause the frosting to curdle (it’ll look chunky).
  • With the mixer running on high speed, slowly add the whipping cream until the frosting becomes light and fluffy, about 1-3 minutes. DO NOT OVERMIX as it will cause the frosting to curdle.
  • Place cakes on wire rack to cool for 10mins then turn out onto wire rack and cool completely.
