What is creme bouquet?
I was wondering the same thing... Googled it and this is what I came up with. "Creme Bouquet Flavoring is a hit among cake decorators. Use as a flavor enhancer in your cakes for a hint of citrus. .." Hmm... makes me wonder why I've never heard of it before.
Anyone needing "creme bouquet" can find it in a specialty store that sells cake and decorating supplies. If you still have trouble I can arrange to send it to you.
I found this creme bouquet substitute recipe from the forums... Creme Bouquet substitute: 1 T. lemon extract or lemon juice 1 t. vanilla extract 1 t. almond extract 1 t. butter extract
Does the cake need to be refrigerated with this filling?
Is this for a wedding cake? How many layers will it frost?
Creme Bouquet is best with yellow cake mix, homemade or boxed.
I just made regular vanilla buttercream and just added the strawberry jelly and mixed well. I also added a tsp of lemon juice. It was delicious. It complemented the strawberry-banana cake I made.
This is the only frosting I use now. Absolutely love it, it melts in your mouth!
How many cups of icing/filling does this make? Anyone who has already made this do you need 1/2 cup heavy cream plus more?
This, am in love with.tried it and loves the only frosting i use now,too.thanks for question is can it be frozen?
can you convert your measurements to normal uk measurements please? Also is your powdered sugar icing sugar and which strawberry preserves do you use? Thank you
Does anyone know if you have to refrigerate this?
The buttercream part of this recipe was out of this world. The Creme Bouquet really put a punch in the icing I've not had before. I didn't like the strawberry preserves at all - I will leave those out in the future. Thanks for a new buttercream recipe!
Powdered sugar usually has added wheat or corn starch added. Please check your labels, if you're making gluten-free sweets. (This was posted under gluten-free.)
This is a great buttercream frosting recipe! I couldn't find the creme bouquet, so I used vanilla and almond extracts. I hope that I can find the creme bouquet so I can try the original recipe though. Also I noticed that nobody has commented on how much this recipe actually makes. I cut this recipe in half and frosted, filled and decorated a 9" round, two layer cake. There was just enough left for me to give my husband a spoonful! ;) I will definitely be using this recipe again! Yummy!
do you put the creme bouquet in the buttercream or cake
Creme bouquet is a flavor enhancer made by CK Products. I got mine from Global Sugar Art but on the bottle it has it's website address which is Hope that helps!
How long does this filling last in the refrigerator or the freezer? I have made it twice and I Love it but not sure how long I can keep it and reuse or just make fresh everytime due to the heavy whipping creme.
The Creme Bouquet sounds similar to a flavoring King Arthur Flour sells called Fiori di Sicilia. I purchased some from them online. It has a vanilla/citrus essence to it. Sort of reminds me of orange creamsicle.
