Can you use candy flavoring in buttercream or do you only use extracts? I am make a chocolate cake and they want mint flavor icing. I have Wiltons candy flavorings and didn't know if I could use that or only extracts?
I use the almond oil in the little bottle for my frostings and cakes and it tastes great.I find it with the chocolates so i'm thinking thats what you use to? the only thing is that its really concentrated so you have to use way less then an extract, a drop at a time literally til it tastes how you want it.
I would use a tiny bit of Lorraine oils peppermint - the flavor really goes a long way, so only use a tad.
I use a combination of peppermint oil and creme de menthe liqueur for my mint buttercream... YUMMMMMMMY!!
But you can definitely use the candy flavoring... just go a little at a time, because a little does go a long way.
