Marscapone Cupcakes

Marscapone Cupcakes
1 box white cake mix
1 c. water
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 egg whites
8 oz. mascarpone cheese, softened

Combine egg whites, vegetable oil, and mascarpone cheese in a bowl. With a hand mixer, incorporate all three ingredients until well mixed. Add cake mix and water. Mix on medium speed until smooth; about 3-minutes. Fill cupcake tins 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes. Let cool.

1/3 c. frozen strawberries, thawed and rinsed
2 1/2 c. powdered sugar

Puree thawed strawberries in a blender or food processor until smooth. Place the powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Whisk in strawberry puree until smooth. Top the cooled cupcakes with glaze mixture and let sit for a minute to allow the glaze to set before serving.

These look delish as well. It's the 2nd recipe I've seen in 2 minutes with marscapone cheese (the mac & cheese recipe at picky palate as well).

They're VERY tasty, but here's a tip: after glazing the cupcakes, allow them to dry and then glaze them again. I also found that I had to add a little more than 1/3 c. strawberry puree to get it to a consistency that I liked.
