Lemon Cupcakes

Since I had left over mascarpone in the fridge from all the fig recipes I thought I should use it up.  I made some delicious lemon cupcakes and frosted them with the mascarpone and topped with slivered almonds and drizzled with honey. Yum! My baking studio is getting a lot of use these days. I am sweating anyway so I might as well bake!
