I'm tired of plain ol' BC. What's your favorite flavor and how do you achieve it?
Get your self some Capella Coffee Flavor Drops and go nuts! I've taken my standard buttercream recipe, omitted the regular extract and flavored with different drops. So far, I've tried buttercream flavored with caramel, banana cream, orange creamsicle, and marshmallow (and even their french vanilla will knock your socks off!). The drops are all clear-ish and because you use so little, they don't impart any color to the icing like some extracts do.
Thanks, Candes, for asking this. I'm bored with the ordinary bc too.
Thanks, MiaT for the suggestions!
Well, I'll be no help on this one! My favorite flavor is vanilla ... white (vanilla) cakes, vanilla milkshakes, vanilla fudge.... lots 'n lots of vanilla! Just inject it straight to my veins, please!!
Here are some flavor combination threads:
a lot of people use different coffee creamers in place of liquids. I've heard of creme bouquet having a flavor of lemon and almond. Since I have both flavors I added some along with vanilla. I like it. For a batch of icing calling for 1 tsp vanilla I used 1/2 tsp of each flavor
