Iâm so sorry, someone posted a great website to get flavoring not long time ago but I can't find the post.

Can someone tell me again where to get good Strawberry and Raspberry flavoring (oils?) for my buttercream?

Thank you!

Lorann is a very popular flavoring manufacturer. Many of the members here buy them at Walmart. HTH

The Wal Marts in other cities may be different but I know that the Wal Mart here only carries LorAnn flavorings during the holidays. I have been going to Country Kitchen to get mine.

It takes a little more fussing, but I use fruit puree for fruit flavors. Can't beat the taste.

I bought quite a few LorAnn oils a while ago, I tried one & it seemed to make my BC very oily. Is it just me? Does this happen to anyone else? I don't use them anymore, which is sad as the flavor is great.

I bought three of them at Candyland Crafts in NJ (since I was there for some other items I needed quickly) and I've used them to flavor my MMF. I've also tried them in fillings, but I haven't tried them (not that I can recall) in regular BC and I thought they were great, especially the coconut.

Maybe I will give them another try. Perhaps I used too much. I see it is very highly concentrated. How much do you put in?

Just try a couple of drops at a time. I use a dropper. Luckily I had one left over from my daughter's vitamins when she was an infant (it was never used, it was an extra and was individually wrapped in plastic).

Good luck.

Okay, I just checked the three bottles that I have (coconut, banana cream and peanut butter) and they're flavors not oils. My mistake. So the only ones I've ever used were the flavors. I didn't realize that there were two different products.

Thanks Sugarplum, I heard that the oils are more potent than the flavorings, I could be wrong buti believe so.

I like Hero brand flavoring compounds, thick and syrupy and made from the real item. I get them from my local wholesaler or you can find them online.
