Does anyone have a recipe for a strawberry frosting that is buttercream based or ices like buttercream???? Does that make sense? I want to
decorate over it....
All I do is put a cup of sugar over my sliced strawberries. Than I let them sit covered in the fridge overnight. The next morning I take the juice that has collected and add it to my buttercream to make strawberry buttercream.
Great idea...I will try that...I'm making some cakes for a bake sale and they want one strawberry and I wasn't sure how I would make a stable strawberry frosting....Thanks so much!!
Oh sure! No problem. That way, you still have a bunch left over for strawberry shortcake.
Cindy, I used Lorann flavoring in my usual buttercream recipe instead of adding real strawberries. Assuming you don't want chunks of strawberry in your buttercream, it is much easier just to make your usual bc recipe and pour a little of the Lorann in there. You can find Lorann in several places. I saw it in AC Moore the other day and I know that Michael's has several flavors they keep around. I don't know if Michael's has strawberry though. I've never seen it there. You could also probably use just regular strawberry flavoring from WalMart.
My Calvin and Hobbes cake was strawberry flavored buttercream using Lorann. It colored and piped just like any other flavoring you would put in there. Hope that helped in some way.
I like both ideas..I haven't seen the Lorann products. Are they with the cake decorating items
at Michael's? We don't have AC Moore here...
Would I just put it in place of the vanilla I usually use or should I use a little of both?
You could also just buy Strawberry flavored extract and add that to your BC..either in place of or addtion to your vanilla extract!
Actually, I just use the juice and not any of the strawberries. You could also strain the juice but it will still turn the bc pink. I think if you use the Lorann oil, you can keep a white buttercream.
I think I will do the clear flavoring for this project since I will be adding fall decorations....
I PM'd You
Now, if you use two bottles like I did , it may give you a slight hint of pink to your white buttercream. I second what MrsMissey said.
I don't think I will need 2 bottles, lol---This is just going to be a 6 inch cake!!!
Cindy - Mary Carter's in Memphis has a whole bunch of the flavors, including strawberry, I believe.
They get ALL my money!!! I just love that place!!!!
I will check there....
I love to use strawberry whipped yogurt!
It just yummy!
