Mango, Mascarpone & Rum Cupcakes!


I put way too much rum into the cream cheese and mango mixture and the frosting became a little runny, but regardless finger-licking good!  I took cupcakes to a friend and she inhaled 2 of them, licking her fingers and rolling her eyes!

I had purchased mascarpone the last time that I was at the grocery store, so I incorporated about 1/3 cup into the wet ingredients.  Besides the pureed mango with rum, the  mascarpone really gave the cupcakes a light and creamy texture.  I had some dried mango, so I cut and put one piece on top of the cupcake….pretty simple, but outrageously delicious!
