mascarpone frosting in white bowl

Mascarpone Frosting

  • Author: Sloane
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6 cups 1x
  • Category: frosting
  • Method: baking
  • Cuisine: American


  • 360g heavy cream (cold)
  • 340g mascarpone (cold)
  • 150g granulated sugar


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, combine the heavy cream, mascarpone, and sugar.
  2. Whisk on low speed until combined, then turn up to medium high speed until thick (only about 30 seconds).
  3. Use immediately or store in the fridge until ready to use. 


  • Be sure to keep an eye on the frosting as it mixes; it will thicken up very quickly, and you do not want to over-whip it! Over-whipping will make it grainy and ruin the silky smooth texture. 
  • This recipe can easily be halved or doubled.
  • I originally made this frosting for this cake - White Cake with Strawberries.
  • This frosting would also be perfect for topping on fresh fruit or even pie!
