Can you use extract flavoring in frosting? I have some coconut extract I am thinking of adding to the frosting, just replacing the water or butter flavor.
Sure just replace the butter flavor with it. Extracts are stonger so dont use too much
Thanks for your help, just wanted to make sure.
I do that all the time. I like to customize my frosting flavor to go with the cake flavor or customer's preferences. I almost always add coconut flavoring when I'm making a German Chocolate cake and not using the traditional coconut pecan frosting. I usually replace half the vanilla flavoring with the other flavoring when it will complement, or completely replace it if it won't.
