Julie's Fake Mascarpone Cheese - Homemade Substitute

One day I needed Mascarpone cheese to go with some berries and I looked in 3 of our 4 small towns and none was to be had so I came up with this easy version. For the flavor I used vanilla but lemon would do. This came out to only 545 calories for the whle batch.
