I just bought a bottle of "princess flavor" from my local cake supply store. They buy large quantities of supplies and then re-package the items in smaller quantities for individual sale. This is the reason why I'm not sure what exactly I've purchased. I was hoping it was princess cake and cookie emulsion, but its a very dark brown color. It has an almond-like flavor and a little bit of a citrus smell which sounds like the descriptions I've read here, but the color is throwing me off. I have seen in these forums that people use it to flavor their icings. I would think this dark brown flavoring would discolor the icing. Did I get the right stuff? Is it supposed to be brown?
Yes this is a dark color.I sell it on-line.I love it.But I don not use in my frosting.It's really for cookies and baked goods.I think you are looking for Creme Bouquet...light butter-citrus flavor.
Hope that helps.
Does anyone know the shelf life of this product? I purchased this a couple of years ago and have it stored in the refrigerator.
LOVEME, what kind of cookies or baked goods do you use YOUR princess flavor in?
I just got some the other day too. But mine is a real bottle by Lorann. It's dark. I used it to perk up the flavor in my last white cake. I loved it. I won't be using it for frosting, though. I think I'm going to save it for my fondant and for my white cakes.
Ahh, y'all who aren't using it for icing are missing out! I've used it for my buttercream and it tastes divine! It doesn't make the icing dark or discolored.
