For Mascarpone topping: Mix all together until smooth. You can add more goat cheese if you want a little more pronounced flavor of the goat cheese.
For Sour Cherry Sauce: Drain the cherries. Put the juice, cornstarch and sugar in a small saucepan and cook until thickened. Add in the cherries and almond extract. I added a drop or two of red food coloring also to give it a nice red color.
