In a medium sized bowl combine the 8 oz of mascarpone and the 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Mix with a spatula until combined and smooth.
Add in the 3/4 confectioners sugar and mix again until combined. Alternatively you can use a hand or stand mixer and beat on medium speed for 1 minute.
In another medium sized bowl, add the 1 cup heavy whipping cream and using a hand or stand mixer with the whip attachment, whip until stiff peaks form. About 2 minutes. Make sure not to over whip as the cream will curdle.
Take the whipped cream and fold it in turns into the mascarpone with a big spatula. Fold and mix until the whipped cream is no longer visible. Store in a bowl in the fridge or use for cake decorating!
Recipe can be made up to 2 days in advance and stored in the fridge.
