I made some cookies this weekend and added four drops of cotton candy Lorann Oil to the cookie icing (I used the glace). However, you really couldn't taste the flavor. There was a total of seven cups of sugar in my glace. How much oil should I use to notice the taste? I didn't want to overpower it, so I went small, but I think next time I should add more.

For those of you who use it, how much do you use?

I just got 3 vials of this as well, and its so concentrated.
this would be good to know as well for me, I don't want to ruin anything.

The oils seem to vary in strength by flavor. The first time I use a particular flavor, I add a few drops at a time and taste it to see if I've added enough.

This is what the Lorann Oils website says:

1dram = 1 teaspoon.

These super-strength flavors are 3 to 4 times stronger than grocery store extracts - a little goes a long way!
1 teaspoon extract = 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon LorAnn super-strength flavoring.

Hope that helps!

Great thanks! So I think I should have used like 8 drops instead of 4. Thanks for the help!

i use toba's glace. for 1lb ps she advises 2-3 drops of oil.

When you say "drops" are you using a dropper? My oil did not come with a dropper...I measure using teaspoon measurements. So if you are using 2-3 drops, how does that measure into teaspoons?

yes, a real dropper icon_smile.gif
you can pay more money to get one from a cake supply, or you can go to walmart and get one in their pharmacy area (i think mine were about $2 for a package of two).

very easy to clean too as the squeeze bulb comes off the glass neck.
