I've heard so much about this Creme Bouquet, adding it to BC and how much it enhances the flavor of BC. I was wondering, is there a recipe to make this. I make my own Vanilla for my cakes . . . so I thought . . .why not make my own Creme Bouquet if I can.

TIA!

I found with the recipe mentioned above that it smells and tastes pretty much the same if you use lemon extract (which I did). I think the reason creme bouquet is so thick is because the companies that make it use the emulsions versus the extracts. Emulsions are more gel-like.

One thing that makes emulsions favorable is that the flavors don't burn off during baking, so you don't need to add much of it. Otherwise you can probably replicate the flavor kinda easily.
