Homemade Mascarpone Cheese Using Ultra Pasteurized Heavy Cream

I have not started giving coffee for my kids so I postponed several years to make Tiramisu Cake at home.  But whenever I go for shopping I never forget to look at the Tiramisu aka coffee cakes placed at bakery section of those stores.. After moving to new place my job of admiring cakes never stopped. We are getting lot of chances to mingle with neighbors around in birthday parties and get togethers. Few months back I got a chance to make Tiramisu cake for a potluck. When I searched for mascarpone cheese in near stores it wasn't in the regular cheese section (a month later I noticed them available in the speciality cheese case next to fresh deli section, jokes apart but they are more expensive). After a week search I planned to make cheese on my own, here's the trouble again

The traditional Yule Log Cake/bûche is made from Sponge cake, usually baked in a Large Swiss roll pan, frosted and rolled to form a cylinder. Again frosted on the outside, Bûches are often served with a portion of one end of the cake cut off and set on top of the cake or protruding from its side to resemble a chopped off branch, and bark-like texture is often produced in the buttercream frosting for further realism. This is often done by dragging a fork through the frosting/icing. The most common combination is a basic yellow sponge cake, frosted and filled with chocolate buttercream. Today's recipe is very similar to traditional yule log except mushroom
