Can anyone tell me where to get clear lemon flavoring that I can use in buttercream. I need the icing to be white. Also, has anyone ever used the Wilton stuff that is supposed to make icing white?
Thanks in advance!

I get clear lemon flavoring at Walmart or Kroger.

As for the Wilton White-White Icing stuff...it didn't change my buttercream icing at all. I had made some buttercream with real butter and it didn't even make a dent in it.

RE: Lemon Flavoring: Me too! McCormick Brand.

RE: White/White: Only use it when I'm "painting" something on a cake and need to lighten it up.

Okay, I've tried this ONCE and it worked for me. If you take a toothpick and BARELY put a little violet/purple on the end (I'm talking the size of 1/2 of the head of a pin) and mix it with your buttercream it will make it "white". Color wheel concept. Opposite of yellow is purple, each offsets the other to "neutralize" it= white. SO! try it first on a practice batch! Like I said, it worked better than the White "coloring" I bought!

Let me know how or if it works for you!
