Can I make this recipe without the orange and lemon oil? Should I add some extract if I do?

How soon after making the icing can I roll it and use it?

Thanks!!

Yes, you can substitute any flavor extract or oil that pleases you. icon_smile.gif

I like to let mine chill in the fridge overnight before I use it. It rolls out easier for me also if its cold.

WOW.. I've been making Cakes for a WHILE, and I've never even heard of rolled buttercream!!
Is it good? Maybe I can make it and taste it then offer this as an alternative.

What is the difference between the oils and extract for flavoring the rolled buttercream? Do you need to use less if you use the extract?

I used the extracts in this recipe, and found I should have added more than what it called for of the oil. Definitely do a taste test....
Loved the way this looked on cookies, and imagine it would be nice on a cake, tasted way better than fondant IMHO. icon_smile.gif
