I LOVE creme bouquet...to me it helps to cut down on the sweetness of buttercream...just my opinion. It's a lot thicker than the other flavorings, but I usually use a 1/2 to 1 tsp of creme bouquet to every batch of buttercream that I do...it has a rich, mellow taste to it...I'm hooked every since I first tried it! I highly recommend you to try it out!

Also, it goes great in poured fondant for petit fours...YUM!! icon_biggrin.gif

I'm with klat! I LOVE creme bouquet. I think I am going to try some of the wedding bouquet that everyone talks about too. It was out of stock online. That is why I got the creme bouquet in the first place. I made a cake with it last weekend and everyone at the party (my daughter turned 9) ranted and raved about it! They loved it and couldn't seem to tell me enough! lol I think I found a new winner!!!

Creme Bouquet does have a citrus based taste... my commercial product actually has gum arabic and xanithan gum listed in its ingredients. I use it on the lighter side of the flavorings... about 1/2 teaspoon in addition to whatever other flavorings are called for. It is specifically touted as a "flavor enhancer" which is why I don't use it to replace anything else.

hey klat,

I'm afraid to assume, but do you omit the vanilla in your recipe, or do you use both? I'd like to try this soon.
Thanks icon_smile.gif

hey, lukasross...

No, I don't omit anything...what I've been doing is putting a 1/2 tsp each of Wilton clear vanilla, Wilton butter flavoring, Wilton almond flavoring, and Magic Line Creme Bouquet flavoring....YUM YUM....the creme bouquet makes a WORLD of difference!!

By the way, the first ingredient listed on the creme bouquet is oil of lemon! It really is a winner...unless someone comes up with another great recipe, I'm sticking to this one!! Good Luck!! icon_biggrin.gif

I use Creme Bouquet and love it, love it, love it! It does cut the sweetness of the butter cream, which I like, as do my clients.
