Mascarpone Cream-Cheese Frosting
4 oz cream cheese (room temperature)
4 oz mascarpone cheese (room temperature)
¼ cup butter (room temperature)
2-3 cups powdered sugar
1 ½ t almond extract
I used this frosting on some sugar cookies I’d flavored with almond extract. I think it would also taste amazing on chocolate cupcakes.
Chocolate-Hazelnut Cream Cheese Frosting
8 oz cream cheese
1 T butter
Add and blend:
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
Add and cream to desired consistency:
¾ cup chocolate-hazelnut spread
1 t vanilla
I served this over simple vanilla cupcakes, but I think it would also taste wonderful on banana cupcakes.
