My friend ordered a cake from me for her dd's 5th birthday, strawberry cake, strawberry mousse filling, and strawberry frosting. I told her that I don't use the canned frosting, like I know that she was picturing, but now I don't know if I can do a strawberry buttercream? It needs to be smoothed, so I can't do the preserves...how else can I flavor BC without making it taste too fake? Anyone have any suggestions? Thank you for any help!
I've made strawberry buttercream before by adding Lorann's strawberry flavoring. It turns it pink though.
actually they have strawberry extract at grocery store...works well
You can also add strawberry preserves into the BC to give it flavor without a fake taste. It is really yummy and you can smooth it, too.
I did the Strawberry buttercream and added Smuckers Strawberry Preserve It tasted so Good. Try it...
Please, Let me know if you liked...
Look for seedless strawberry jelly instead of preserves.
I also used Lorann strawberry flavoring in SMBC and it was Yummy!
I've also mixed strawberry preserves with bc for filling...yummy and it was smooth!!
Thank you everyone! I think I'll try the seedless jam with a little extract or Lorann's oil. That way it will smooth nicely without the lumps of fruit in it
