What flavor coffee creamers have you used in your icing? What would you suggest for a vanilla pound cake and a chocolate chocolate cake?

I have used the vanilla caramel and chocolate mint. If I remember right the caramel one was in the powder form and the choc mint was the liquid form. Both very good!!

I have used the Pralines & Creme and the Hazelnut, both of which were really good! icon_smile.gif

I've tried Toffee Nut and Coconut Cream. Also, they had a Vanilla Spiced rum at Christmas time...they were all good. The Toffee Nut one has been the one best liked by everyone.

I've used Irish Cream and Hazlenut - I have a Butter Pecan flavour in the fridge waiting to be used. All are the liquid creamer.

I use French Vanilla a lot, Creme Brulee and pumpkin spice. The French Vanilla and Creme Brulee would both be good on white, butter or chocolate cake. I used the pumpkin spice on a spice cake and it was good, but did offset the color of the buttercream a little bit (not a true white). I've also used White Chocolate Almond, but prefer the French Vanilla and Creme Brulee over that.

Do you have to refridgerate the cake if you use the creamer in the icing?

I am curious as to how to incorporate the creamer (liquid or powder) into to the icing. Also, does anyone have a recipe to share??\\
TIA

Sugarshack's BC recipe uses powdered creamer. Many people here love it.

Here's a link to the original thread:

The beauty of it is...as long as it is non-dairy creamer you do Not have to refridgerate! icon_biggrin.gif I use the dry, mix it 1 to 1 and use it instead of the liquid in buttercream.

If you use the liquid how do you use it-do you use it as a substitute for your milk?

I have used several different flavors (always the liquid though for me). I just replace the liquid exactly, and it turns out great!

For Sugarshack's recipe, I use the vanilla non-dairy and the icing, to me, tastes like cotton candy...I LOVE it....AND it doesn't have to be refrigeratedicon_wink.gif
(with the liquid creamers, it DOES have to be refrigerated)

I have a bottle of liquid chocolate mint flavor. I haven't used it yet because I've been too busy with homework. Any suggestions for cake flavors to pair that with?

When using the coffee creamer is this the only liquid you use or do you also include other exctrats in the icing?

Wendoger Posted 23 Mar 2008 , 8:52pm

Either or....if I'm doing vanilla creamer, I dont add any flavorings cuz it comes out tasting like cotton candy to me...I love it....but if I do a flavorless creamer, I will add an extract.
