I use them ALL the time!! I use them in cake batter (I have a French Toast flavored cake on my counter right now!) That's how I make my chocolate raspberry and white raspberry cakes. I also use them in my IMBC - I made a choc cake with pistachio IMBC filling on Tuesday.

I have also used them in my coffee in the morning, I have a whipped cream dispenser, I add a few drop of flavoring to the cream (like strawberry) and instant flavored whipped cream. I have added them to meringue to make flavored meringue cookies. I add them to sugar cookie dough.

I was very sad when they discontinued the white chocolate raspberry they had, there are also stopping the strawberries and cream so I stocked up on that, that was a big seller, I would color part of my batter pink and make a pink and white marble cake for the strawberries and cream cake - big seller. Trying the other strawberry flavor they have to see if I can use that instead when I run out.

The caramel flavor makes my son's favorite cake as well. The little bottles really do last quite a long time.

I am going to make candy apples and make cotton candy flavored ones for my son next week when I have time. icon_biggrin.gif

SweetResults, those are great ideas! You have inspired me to give them a try. I really want to try some of the new flavors for holiday cookies! White chocolate raspberry sounds good! I hate it when they discontinue flavors. If you don't mind sharing... how many drops to you use in your cake batter? Thanks

I usually start out with about 6-8 and then I taste the batter, keep adding one or 2 drops at a time till it tastes right. The same with the frosting. Also - add the drops and let it mix/sit for a little bit, the flavor will get a little stronger after it sits.

I'm a big fan, you can also combine them to make other flavors, I think they have a chart on their website.

Orange creamsicle is great in chocolate cake as well!

Sweetresults; I tend to not put flavoring of any kind in my icing because I can always taste the alcohol aftertaste, but, it does leave it kind of bland. Are these made with alcohol as well? And are they colored? I'd like to be able to come up with a French vanilla icing but still keep it white.

Also, where do you get them from? Thanks so much!

Callyssa, since you don't like the alcohol in traditional flavorings why don't you try using the candy oil flavorings. I use the strawberry oil flavoring in my strawberry icing and it is great.

Mandi.....thank you! I guess it never even occurred to me that I could. And I think the Lorann Factory is near where I live too, so I could find some of the odd flavors without having to order. Great idea!
