How would I turn royal icing/ butter cream icing into raspberry icing. Can I just add raspberries? Also, I hear a lot of you talk about Raspberry preserves.......I can only find raspberry jam, strawberry jam, etc. Where would I find the preserve?
you can give it a suttle raspberry flavor and a slight pink color by using chambord for the liquid in your frosting. Chambord is a raspberry liquor. It is expensive, but some liquor stores sell sample bottles, there is 1/4 cup in a sample bottle.....
I agree with salsaman42 I have done the same BUT have added raspberry extract as well to it.
Here is a link for Raspberry Buttercream,
And you also can make Raspberry Curd and mix it to your normal buttercream.
