8. Use a knife, cupcake core, or tube tip to make a hole in the center of each cupcake. Pour in the white chocolate filling.

9. Prepare frosting. In a large bowl, add cream cheese and mascarpone. Mix until soft. Add powdered sugar, mint extract, and green food coloring and mix until well combined. Gradually add 1 teaspoon of cream at a time until desired consistency is reached.

10. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag with the desired tip attached and decorate the cupcakes.

11. Serve or leave the cupcakes in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Let them come to room temperature before serving.
