I'm (impatiently) waiting for my buttercream dvd to arrive but have a cake this weekend that i would like to do using her recipe for bc. I've read the recipe and watched it on youtube. My question is about the wedding bouquet...4 tbsp seems like a lot if i'm substituting it with just vanilla and almond extracts. Do you bump up the creamer and lessen the amount of extract? I appreciate any input icon_smile.gif

I use vanilla and bakers compliment and use 2 tablespoons of flavor and 14 Tablespoons of milk.

Just start adding more milk when the consistency isn't the way you want it to be.

I don't use the wedding bouquet flavouring at all - or any flavouring for that matter. I buy the liquid coffee creamer (not powdered) in a number of flavours and just use that. At the grocery store, I can get up to 6 or 7 different flavours of coffee creamer. Some of the creamers are not white-white (most are though), so they may affect the colour of the icing. I never care about that if I am going to colour the icing or cover it with fondant. However, if I want a really white icing, I use Irish Cream flavoured coffee creamer as it is white.
