  1. Place powdered sugar and butter in an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Start mixing on the lowest speed. Increase speed to medium and beat until fluffy, scraping down the sides occasionally, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add mascarpone cheese and vanilla paste; mix on medium-low until creamy. Do not overmix frosting at this point, or the butter and mascarpone could separate.

I added cocoa powder and Kirsch flavoring ( in lieu of the vanilla paste) and it was delicious on a chocolate cake.

Kids liked it too!
