Okay, I LOVE creme bouquet. I've never tried the Princess, Creme Royal, or Butavan or Wedding Cake, etc.

Apparently all of these are very similar?? A mix of vanilla, lemon, etc.

My question is:

Does anyone have a recipe for MAKING something like this? You know, 1 tsp. vanilla, 1 tsp lemon extract, etc.???

With the WASC, it calls for 2 tsp. each of vanilla and almond extract; in that recipe, I use 1 tsp. each of vanilla and almond extract, and 2 tsp. of Creme Bouquet. This seemed to be subtle enough that people could tell there was something different about the flavor, but just couldn't pinpoint what exactly. They just knew they liked it.

I have the other flavors - I just haven't used them yet - so sorry, not much help there. I'll just have to experiment and see.

I haven't ordered Wedding Bouquet either, but that's a whole other thread.

I've only used Butavan, Creme Bouquet, Creme Royal and Princess flavorings but I substitute equally for whatever amount of vanilla is called for. Seems to work well - they are all subtly different.
