Instructions Nutella and mascarpone frosting for cakes and cupcakes

  • For this recipe, the mascarpone and whipped cream must be very cold. Whipping cream must rest in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours before use otherwise it will not whip well.
  • Place the cream and mascarpone in a bowl. Whip with whisk on medium-high speed until all ingredients are blended.
  • The cream will go from a rather liquid state to a thick and whipped form. Don't whip it for too long because it could create lumps. When the cream is whipped but smooth, turn off the mixer.
  • Now change the whisks of the mixer and put the spiral ones to mix. If you don't have that type of whisk available, you can simply use a spoon or a silicone spatula. Add the Nutella and mix slowly until all the ingredients are well blended.
  • I recommend letting the cream rest for at least 30 minutes in the fridge to make it firmer and more compact. Once you decide to use it, transfer it to the piping bag or use it as you like to decorate your birthday cake.
