I cannot find the Creme Bouquet and Wedding Flavor Extracts anywhere online... does anyone have a source. Of course, I need it in less than 2 weeks. My local "party source" store no longer carries them. Thanks in advance.

Hi lutie, I inquired about it from Alan at Global Sugar Art. He has ordered them, I don't think he has got it yet. If you want, you can check it with him.

I tried at CountryKitchensa, but they do not have the wedding extract showing on their web site. Thanks for letting me know about them.

i just checked out the National Flavors website. Can anyone give an idea of what the pricing of any of the products is like?

www.sweetc.com (Sweet Celebrations, formerly Maid of Scandinavia) has Creme Bouquet. 2 oz for 2.49, 8 oz for 7.20. 800-328-6722. They also have stores in Minneapolis, MN.

lutie Posted 2 May 2008 , 2:10pm

To update the results: Creme Bouquet has been found, but no one can address where I can find the Wedding Extract. PLEASE... could someone who has used this let me know where they have purchased it? ... or is it something where I could mix so much of this and so much of that... I would appreciate any and all ideas and answers.

Scroll up a bit for JanH's post (5th post in this thread), she gives you the link to a thread with info on where to get Wedding Bouquet. It can only be purchased from MS. Sandra, she mixes it up herself in her shop.

National Flavors is a manufacturer that sells wholesale (even to the public). The two sizes they commonly sell are quarts and gallons. (Some of their quart prices are what I've paid for 4 oz. at the decorating shop.)

Here are some National Flavors feedback threads (with pricing info on some products ):

I bought some WB at the Winnie DOS last month, and am about to work on my next cake...

Please help this newbie to WB - can I use it IN the cake mix? Can I use it in a chocolate cake mix? Or is it just used in BC? I am a 'fondant' girl, so my buttercream usage is just for filling and crumbcoating (and some attaching). And I use butter-based buttercream - I don't do the shortening thing.

Thanks in advance, can't wait to use the WB, it will be nice to taste vs just smelling! icon_smile.gif LOL!

Regards,
Wendl

majormichel Posted 4 May 2008 , 6:56pm

Oh Where, Oh where can I find the creme bouquet and the wedding bouquet in Canada.

I recently bought the Creme Bouquet from Kitchen Krafts, it is a mixture of vanilla and citrus. I haven't used it yet, but it smells wonderful!

ammo824 Posted 4 May 2008 , 7:25pm

I recently ordered some creme bouquet from www.countrykitchensa.com . I like it pretty good. It is strong though. It doesn't take much!! I have only used it in BC so I'm not sure about using it in the actual cake.

lutie Posted 5 May 2008 , 4:24pm

I just love everyone on Cake Central! Thanks so much for the input and yes, I have placed my orders for both of the extracts. (I ordered more than one to make sure I did not run out of them at some critical point). The Wedding Bouquet was ordered, as is the Creme Bouquet, on different sites.

Now, just one more question... how much are you all using in the cake versus the icing? What has been your experience(s) with them?

Thanks in advance for everything you do to help me become better and better at this great art!

superstar Posted 5 May 2008 , 10:24pm

I love Creme Bouquet, use it a lot & will be ordering the WB from Global with my next order.

majormichel Posted 16 May 2008 , 10:17pm

okay this correct, WB is the same as Creme bouquet? so I can buy either one?

fiddlesticks Posted 16 May 2008 , 10:35pm

majormichel No ( at least to me ) they are not the same flavor..lutie .. You just have to try and see what you like ! I use 2-4 tsp in my icing ! Some people use A lot more! I like a more mellow flavor.

lutie Posted 19 May 2008 , 6:37pm

Fiddlesticks: I had a wonderful experience this week-end. I catered a wedding for 200 and made the cake... Below is the recipe that garnered the most attention to my baking I have had in a while... Strawberry Butter Cream Filling to the wedding cakes. My "food barometer" is the way men react to my food... this one went off the scale... the men loved this cake (and especially the strawberry butter cream filling with Creme Bouquet).

The recipe is in the Recipe Section as of today, but here it is... I used an "over-flowing" tablespoon of Creme Bouquet.

Lutie's Strawberry Butter Cream Filling

Beat for 3 to 4 minutes:

3 cups butter, room temperature
1 cup Crisco

Add (slowly and cover your mixing bowl with a towel to keep down the sugar powder):
2 - 32 oz. bags 10X sugar (powdered sugar)
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 over-flowing Tablespoon Creme Bouquet
Dash salt

Beat for 5 minutes and slowly add the rest of
the heavy whipping cream, (It is your preference how
much more you put into this).

On the highest speed, "beat the dickens" out it for
another 5 minutes.

Out of this icing, take what you think will be enough for your cake filling and put it into a separate bowl.

With a large spoon, add:
1/2 of a 24 oz. jar of Strawberry Preserves

Fold into the butter cream and place between the layers of your cake.
Use the rest of the butter cream to crumb coat your cake.

The ooo's and ahhh's will be heard all the way back from the reception to the kitchen!

Yes, I love this Creme Bouquet... now can someone tell me about their experience(s) with Wedding Bouquet?

fiddlesticks Posted 19 May 2008 , 11:57pm

lutie.. Thanks so much for sharing ! I really dont know how to explain what the wedding bouquet tastes like ! I just know I love the flavor !!Some say it taste like a citrus flavor .Im not sure I taste it that way ! Thanks again !!

CNCS Posted 20 May 2008 , 12:57am

get mine at mary carter in memphis. www.bakinstuf.com

twooten173 Posted 20 May 2008 , 1:20am

lutie, I'm on my way to the kitchen. This sounds amazing.

Yomomma Posted 20 May 2008 , 2:12am

If Creme Bouquet has a citrus/vanilla flavoring how does it compare to Fiori Di Sicilia?

sandeeb Posted 18 Jul 2013 , 10:54pm

Lutie, I don't know when you posted about looking for Wedding Bouquet Flavor but you can get it from B&B Cake Supplies in Louisiana. Look online.

sandeeb Posted 18 Jul 2013 , 10:59pm

I use only Wedding Bouquet and I use about 2 teaspoons per pound of confectioners sugar in each recipe. I also use 2-3 teaspoons in a white Duncan Hines cake mix.
