Strawberry-Raspberry Mascarpone Buttercream:
A New Classic

Once again, I am tickled pink to share a recipe with you. This time, it is for my original recipe for Strawberry-Raspberry Mascarpone Buttercream. It was created especially for Georgia of The Comfort of Cooking for her virtual baby shower last spring to frost her cake, White Velvet Layer Cake.

Georgia is Italian and I knew right away that I was going to make a special buttercream incorporating mascarpone cheese to celebrate her heritage. Also, the theme of her shower was Think Pink! because she was expecting a sweet baby girl. Her little Southern Belle’s name is Lily and she is precious!

I was thrilled with the results of this special buttercream—both in taste and piping performance as shown with this stunningly beautiful Rose Cake. The strawberry-raspberry flavor combination just cannot be beat when incorporated into a mascarpone buttercream. It is dreamy and romantic—perfect for birthdays, garden parties, showers, Valentine’s Day and Easter.

It was important for me to create an extraordinary buttercream recipe made using only all-natural ingredients yet be easy to prepare so that perhaps Georgia could make this Rose Cake for her little girl’s first birthday without any fuss but with it being big on presentation. How fitting would this cake be for a sweet little princess on her first birthday?

My hope is that Georgia and her family will love this recipe as much as we do at our house. This buttercream ranks right up there with our Caramel Cream Cheese Buttercream made with salted caramel and Lemon Cream Cheese Buttercream. These are fabulous cream cheese buttercreams and are my top three favorites. With these three, I can never resist the urge to dip into the bowl with a spoon!

Strawberry-Raspberry Mascarpone Buttercream

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Makes about 5½ cups; enough to fill and frost a double 9-inch layer cake or triple 8-inch layer cake.

Strawberry-Raspberry Mascarpone Buttercream

Silky-smooth, gorgeous and truly extraordinary, our Strawberry-Raspberry Mascarpone Buttercream is made with fresh creamery butter, fine-quality mascarpone cheese and lush homemade ruby-red Strawberry-Raspberry Sauce made with fresh strawberries and raspberries. The pink color is natural and it pipes beautifully for stunning cakes and cupcakes making it ideal for the most special of occasions. It tastes just like strawberry-raspberry cheesecake!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (4 sticks/452 grams) unsalted butter, softened (or 2 sticks salted & 2 sticks unsalted)
  • ½ 8-ounce container (113 grams) chilled fine-quality mascarpone cheese
  • 6 tablespoons (113 grams) Strawberry-Raspberry Sauce, recipe by Wicked Good Kitchen™
  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) pure vanilla extract, such as Nielsen-Massey®, optional
  • 4 to 4½ cups (480 to 540 grams) confectioners’ sugar, spooned in cup, leveled off & sifted
  • Natural pink food coloring, such as ChefMaster, optional

Preparation

Using an electric stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, or handheld mixer and large bowl, beat butter on medium speed until creamy. Add mascarpone cheese, Strawberry-Raspberry Sauce and vanilla, if desired; beat until fully incorporated. Gradually increase mixer speed to high and continue beating until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of bowl as necessary with rubber spatula.

Gradually add confectioners’ sugar, beating on low speed (stir), until well combined. Beat on high speed until well combined and smooth while scraping down sides of bowl as necessary, about 2 minutes. If desired, tint buttercream with pink food coloring.

Notes

Tips:

If not using immediately, the buttercream can be refrigerated for up to 2 to 3 days in an airtight container. Before using, bring to room temperature before beating smooth again.

If using the buttercream to pipe details, be sure to use chilled hands when handling pastry bag as warm hands can melt the buttercream.

Before filling, frosting, icing and piping cakes, rebeat buttercream to ensure smoothness.

  4. Welcome back Stacy! I’ve been thinking of you and not sure if you got my messages but I hope you are doing well 🙂 This buttercream is gorgeous! Love the pretty color!

    • Thank you for the compliments and warm welcome back, Kelly! You are so sweet. Yes! Of course, I received your messages. (But, I didn’t read any emails until mid-October. I was still so sick.) And, I sent you an email to thank you for thinking of me a couple days before Christmas. I hope you received it. 🙂 I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your family.

    Love this.. I was looking for a strawberry marscarpon frosting for my daughters birthday. I am so excided to try this, this weekend

    • Thank you for writing, Tabetha! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do at our house. It is very rich, just like a cream cheese buttercream but has a heavenly berry flavor that can’t be beat using both strawberries and raspberries. Plus, the color is all natural and so pretty. Enjoy and happy birthday to your daughter!

  9. Hi Jill, I’m planning to use this recipe to frost my daughter’s first birthday cake. Would the berry sauce work with frozen berries (the fresh berries at this time of the year are so lackluster!)? If so are there any modifications to the sauce recipe? Thanks for the gorgeous recipe!

    • Ack! Hi Stacy, Sorry, I had my friend, Jill, on my mind!

    • Hi there, Calisun! My pleasure. Thank you for writing. To answer your question… Yes, absolutely. You can use both frozen strawberries and raspberries. They may provide just a little more juice than fresh, so adjust your cooking time by a couple minutes to yield the thickness you desire. Once again, thank you for writing. I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly and completely. Meanwhile, happy buttercream making!

  10. Your Recipes Have To Many Ingredients That The Average Person Would Not Have At Home

    • Thanks for writing, Katherine! To each his own. My blog centers on baking from scratch with all-natural ingredients. In addition, whenever possible, thoroughly tested variations are provided for special diets to avoid common food allergens. As such, the recipes are developed with wholesome ingredients and, oftentimes, these ingredients are not found in national grocery store chains. Thank goodness for Whole Foods Market in these cases. If you want recipes with only 3 ingredients, those ingredients are generally highly processed with many food additives added that are not healthy for humans. Thanks again for stopping by, taking an interest in Wicked Good Kitchen and for voicing your opinion. I greatly appreciate your readership. 🙂 Happy Valentine’s Day!

  11. I have always made the regular and well know icing – following my grandmother’s recipes.
    I am completely addicted to any and all buttercream frosting now and always find a way to incorporate it on any baking that I do. Thanks for the great recipes makes it a lot easier.

    • Thank you for writing, Pauline! My pleasure. I am happy that you are thrilled with my buttercream frosting recipes. Meanwhile, I am looking forward to sharing several cake recipes as part of my Layer Cake Series. Of course, there will be more buttercream recipes to come as well. Thanks again for writing and happy baking and buttercream making!

  12. I am absolutely in love with your recipes, and I wanted to make the white velvet cake for my sister’s baby shower. My usual go-to is a whipped buttercream cause it’s not overly sweet and very light and fluffy, and I wondered if, between your regular berry buttercream and this mascarpone recipe, if the mascarpone is heavier or much sweeter?

    • Hi there, Talia! Thank you for writing with such a great question. This recipe for Strawberry-Raspberry Mascarpone Buttercream is heavier than the light and billowy Raspberry and Strawberry Silk Buttercream, as you can imagine. Both are about the same as far as sweetness goes. If you prefer light and fluffy buttercreams, I highly recommend the Raspberry and Strawberry Silk Buttercream recipe. If you are undecided, you can always give each recipe a trial run and do a taste test. Thanks again for writing and I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly and completely. Happy baking and buttercream making! And have fun at the shower! 🙂

  13. could I use regular cream cheese instead?

    • Hi there, Peggy! Thank you for writing with such a great question. Yes, you may certainly substitute cream cheese (Philadelphia-style) for the mascarpone in this recipe for Strawberry-Raspberry Mascarpone Buttercream. My new favorite brand of cream cheese is Organic Valley®. Thanks again for writing, Peggy. I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly and completely. Meanwhile, happy baking and buttercream making!
