What is the mixture of mascapone suppose to look like when finished, mine just looks a lumpy yellow mess.......

Depends what sort of recipe you're using but mine looks like thick cream...

Mine too like thick cream or custard

perhaps keep stirring

Please give your recipe. Thanks

what are you mixing the mascapone with

my top tip is to used carton ambrosia and mix that with the mascapone, it has a fantastic consistency and really hold together well.

hmmm... about time I made some I think

If you have horrid lumps best get the electric beaters to it for a minute

If you can wait till 4.15pm I can ask him

I have a "cheats" version which is really easy - we call it tirami-psuedo

I put anything lumpy like that (my custard springs to mind) through a sieve and presto! No lumps. You'll have to smoosh the mixture through with a wooden spoon, though. And you have another thing to wash....

DH uses tin custard

or now you can buy a litre in carton
