Wonderful idea! I had a couple problems. One--everyone wanted the Amaretto so added to the bottom of a plate and the cupcake absorbed it perfectly. 2) I had to food-process the marscapone to get it smooth. That was after adding the cool whip, so it ran. Still impressive! Prefer plain frosting. - 9/6/10
