  1. Place mascarpone in a large bowl and beat until smooth and creamy
  2. Add 2 cups of icing sugar and mix well combined. Add 1 more cup of icing sugar and mix well

  4. Continue adding icing sugar ¼ cup at a time until the icing reaches your desired consistency

Note: I brightened up the colour of my icing using a little whitening paste
