Make Strawberry Santa's, it's a fun DIY project to do over the holidays!
• 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese, room temperature
• 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
• 1 cup powdered sugar
• 14 large strawberries
To make frosting: In a medium bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat the mascarpone, powdered sugar, and vanilla until the mixture is smooth. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag fitted with a small star piping tip.
To make Santa's: use a knife, cut off the leaf-end of each strawberry to make flat surface. Cut a 1/2 inch piece from the pointed end of each strawberry and save the tops.
Place the strawberries, wide side down, on a work surface. Pipe a 3/4 inch swirl of frosting on each strawberry. Place hats on top and pipe a small ball of frosting on top of the hats. Add 2 dots to make Santa buttons.
