I just discovered, Cream Bouquet! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif I think it gives my bc the taste I have loved from my favorite bakery's (Schmidts Pasty Cottage) bc. Why is it such a secret. I don't hear a lot of people talk about using it as flavoring. Anyone else love the flavor this gives things? I think it could be used in the cake itself besides the bc. What are others opionion of it? icon_smile.gif

I've used creme bouquet for years in a whipped cream mousse filling I make- it makes it takes kinda like cheesecake! Yum! icon_smile.gif Another decorator in my town does a citrus cake and uses it in the batter and frosting.

I recently tried it in Toba Garrett's French Vanilla BC and it really gave it a nice flavor!

I use it in my bc too, but have yet to try it in a cake. I really want to though! I also bought some Princess Cake & Cookie emulsion today! Can't wait to try that either!

terrier, i've bought alot of stuff from the "blocked" site and hadn't realized that they sell creme bouquet there. I got mine from somewhere else and of course I can't remember now where I got it from. LOL

I think there are a few brands of that flavour out there. I've heard that some are good and some taste nasty. Of course if it's citrusy, I love it.

I haven't been able to lay my hands on the creme bouquet so I looked up the ingredients and made my own - it actually turned out really good. I added it to my MMF and made it taste incredible! Had a great "scent" to it too! My DIL kept saying the smell of it was making her hungry! lol

I've always hesitated purchasing Cream Bouquet when I go to my local cake supply store. I'll be at the store first thing Monday morning after reading this post.

I use it in WASC in place of the almond. It lends a really nice flavor. Its my favorite cake.

I had read so much about it here on CC that I ordered a bottle. The first time I used it I didn't like it, I don't know what I was expecting. But, after that it grew on me.

I especially like using it in my Sugar Cookies.

I would be happy to! Here it is:

1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp (clear) vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp butter flavoring

Maybe I should put this on the recipe link, too. (icon_rolleyes.gif duh)

Hope you like it! Let me know what you think!

You're welcome terrier! Yes, lemon JUICE not flavoring. I hope you like it and your clients like it too! Something I didn't mention: you may want to play around with the amount of the "total" recipe you use in your cake mixes versus your b/c or fondant. I used the full strength for my fondant and would probably use close to that amount for my b/c since my recipe makes so much (2.5 quarts). But you may want to use about 1 - 2 tsp of the "total" recipe per cake mix. But you can certainly adjust it to your preference. HTH! icon_wink.gif

terrier (and other newbies) just so you know, anything having to do with a certain store that comes up blocked is for a specific reason. Many, many members of CC received terrible customer service after experiencing problems when ordering from that site and there were even some words/messages exchaned with both the owner of that establishment and Heath and Jackie. That owner said some really horrible things about this site and its members so most members decided, if they hadn't already, to boycott the site and store. Part of that is why the name of the site is blocked and no longer mentioned.

As for where to purchase Creme Bouquet, there are a few places where I've seen it. I know that Global Sugar Art is carrying it as well and Alan (the owner) is a member here. He's very helpful, knowledgable and sincere. His site has amazing Customer Service, too. This is the reason Heath and Jackie have decided to make his site the supplier of choice.

Just wanted to give you a little background. There's a reason for it all! icon_biggrin.gif

i have a question since i ordered 2 bottles of this just yesterday.

if you wanna make let's say a lemon cake, do you add creme bouquet AND the lemon extract or oil? does it enhance the flavor or it's a flavoring in itself?

i hope that makes sense. am really excited about it LOL

Some people replace their extract, while others add it in addition to their extract. Usually I half the amount of extract and replace that with the bouquet and add a bit extra. Sorry I don't have an exact amount for you and that this answer isn't very helpful, but that's me....... icon_rolleyes.gificon_wink.gif

Global Sugar Art has the Wedding Bouquet now. But Alan said that he is getting the Cream Bouquet stocks this week. So I can't wait to buy them since we don't have them here in UK.

I just bought a 8 oz bottle of Magic Line Professional Strength Creme Bouquet from the cake store. Do you use. 1/4, 1/2 or full teaspoon? I know is strong so that's why I am asking too. Thanks.
