What is your favorite flavor/brand of flavor for your buttercream.

I need to find a better tasting clear vanilla (other than Wilton....I don't like it) or other flavoring.

I've also tried Butavan.....it tastes so-so.

Anyone have a great flavor idea to share....I want a flavor like vanilla ice cream or something similar.

I use equal parts almond, butter and vanilla flavorings. I tried to change it once and my clients complained. I guess it's a case of "don't fix what ain't broke" as we say here in the south.

I use clear vanilla made by Virgina Dare, orange and butter flavoring. I have not received any complaints. I even like it! icon_smile.gif

I really need to try almond and butter. I love almonds. They taste good all together to?? That is interesting. I would love to try raspberry extract...yum!

I love Butavan. I normally use butter, almond & vanilla (for my 6qt I use 3 T vanilla, 2 T Butter & 1 T Almond). Lorann's Princess Emulsion & Buttery Dough Emulsion are pretty yummy too (it doesn't take as much b/c it's more concentrated). They are more nutty/citrus flavored.

Can Lorann's Princess Emulsion be used in Sugarshack's Buttercream and how much would you use?

I've used it before but don't remember how much I used mjk350. I don't think I would use more than 1-2T for a 6qt batch. It can become overwhelming if you're not careful. I like a good mixture of cake flavor & icing flavor, not too strong of either. For the remainder of my 6qt batch I would use clear vanilla
