Mascarpone Cupcakes with Strawberry glaze

Very easy and fun cup cakes that kids will really fall in love with!I made these for one of my friend's daughter's Birthday.The mascarpone cheese makes it super soft inside and the strawberry glaze on top gives the cupcakes a tangy taste.
Mascarpone cheese is an Italian cheese that is similar to cream cheese in texture.You can usually find in the cheese section of the grocery stores.

Recipe:Giada De Laurentiis
Yields 48 mini muffins or about 20 muffins

8 oz mascarpone cheese, softened
2 egg whites
1/4 vegetable oil
1 box White Cake Mix
1 cup water
1/3 cup frozen strawberries, thawed and drained
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • Preheat the oven to 350F
  • Line the muffin tins with liners or you could use the muffin/baking cups
  • Beat the cheese, egg whites and Vegetable oil until well combined and creamy
  • Add the cake mix and water and mix until smooth
  • Fill the tins/cups just below the rim
  • Bake them till puffed and golden about 18 to 20 min
  • Take out from the oven and let them cool slightly.
Glaze
  • Puree the strawberries
  • Whisk the confectioners' sugar and strawberries until smooth
  • Top the cooled cupcakes with the glaze.
  • Let them sit for a while for the glaze to firm up

The cupcakes look adorable. I envy you Shri for all the fancy stuff u get and use. Here, most of this is either not available and if it's ..then it's very expensive. will try using the cream cheese as that surely is available.
