This frosting would be wonderful on top of a lemon cupcake, lemon and raspberry is one of my favorite flavor combinations! You could also use this to top a basic vanilla cupcake, sugar cookies or even a chocolate cake.
Give your cupcakes a little extra pizazz by adding a Wilton 1M large star tip to the end of a pastry bag. Add the Raspberry Mascarpone Frosting to the bag and squeeze gently while you swirl the icing from the outside in to make a soft peak in the center. You can also top the cupcakes with sprinkles or even a couple fresh raspberries!
