Hi Everyone!
Wasn't sure where to put this...but I just have to tell everyone. I went by the liquor store this morning to purchase a bottle of vodka for my fondant things.

They had a bottle of Vanilla Vodka. Has anyone ever tried it?? It smells like clear vanilla!! I am going to use that to make some Vanilla Extract.

I would like to know if anyone out there has run across this yet.

Thanks
Rhonda

not vanilla vodka, but i make my own skittles vodka lmao, i dont know if you have skittles where you live, but in the UK there a bright coloured sweet and the slogan is 'taste the rainbow' as they are coloured to which ever fruit the taste like that.

take a bottle of vod, add a bag or two of skittles. leave over night. And it Tastes lovley! it goes all fruity and delish! im sure theres many other things you can add like vanilla to make it taste different!!

do you use the vodka to paint on your fondant? i have heard of this, but havent tried it yet. i wondered if it added a vodka taste to the fondant, and what if an alcaholic were to eat the cake - would it make them have a setback? please inform if you know, i have wanted to try it with my airbrush, but have been scared to so far.

The vodka evaporates and leaves no trace of taste on the cake.

it doesn't make the fondant taste like vodka. you just mix it with your luster dust until it forms a thin paste and use it to paint your accents or whatever. the taste will disappear as it evaporates.

I buy it for my pie crust. I honestly don't know if you can taste it after it is baked. It just makes me feel fancy. icon_wink.gif

Sha0427..... I do use it on my Fondant every time I make something, just about. I have never used the vanilla, but use the plain. It makes your fondant shine, like the others said.... I mix with my luster dusts to paint with too. It's like the finishing touch to your piece. '

The alcohol does evaporate so there is no taste. I can't want to use it!!

(LOL)!!! They also had some " Clear " Strawberry, lime, lemon, citrus, and watermelon flavored vodka! That would be kinda neat, of someone wanted strawberry flavored buttercream, but wanted it to still stay white!!
