Mascarpone Whipped Topping

Date Attempted: 10/26/16

Recipe Number: 37

So I’ve already been over how magical this red wine chocolate cake is but now it’s time to talk about the mascarpone whipped topping. Yes, you can top a cake with cool whip, or whipped cream, or even homemade whipped topping, but nothing is better than mascarpone whipped cream. I have thought of a variety of uses for this whipped topping, which is why it deserves its own post and place of honor on this blog.

  • To top waffles
  • To top cake
  • Inside strawberries (Think like balsamic strawberries with whipped marscapone)
  • In strawberry short cakes — because that just sounds better
  • As frosting on cupcakes
  • To top a tart
  • On top of a lemon cake (yum!)
  • With grilled peaches for an amazing dessert

How to make it:

  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1 cup  chilled heavy or whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

Whip mascarpone, cream, sugar and vanilla together until soft peaks form — don’t overwhip.
