Can someone help me please? I was making chocolate cream cheese frosting to go over the banana cake and while putting flavoring (vanilla and cream bouquet), by mistake I put a little more of the cream bouquet. It has a bad aftertaste from it now. How can I fix it? I tried adding more vanilla and some almond extract, nothing is working. If I add more buttercream to it will it solve the problem or something else?

I would say that would be the only fix is adding more buttercream.

Yes, add plain, unflavored buttercream to the already-flavored batch until it gets to a point that it no longer has an aftertaste.

Yeah choc and cream bouquet= very bad. Blahhhh. I learned that one too a while back.

Not sure why when, (lemon almond vanilla and cherry?), (vanilla and chocolate), (lemon and chocolate), (almond and chocolate), (cherry and chocolate), are all good. But the mix of it is just too much.

Thanks everyone. I added more vanilla and some buttercream which had just vanilla in it and it is much better. Actually I am the only one who is feeling it, my husband said it is a little lemony but fine.
