I have my first wedding cake coming up. The bride asked if I can make the fondant taste like strawberry on 1 layer, chocolate on another and last layer like marshmallows. Can I use Lorann oils to accomplish this or am I just asking too much from my fondant? Please help
It depends what colors you are willing to do - if you want all white fondant you may have a problem, but if you can go with different colors no problem at all! The Lorann strawberry is a red/pink color and will tint your fondant a little. To get chocolate, you will have to really use chocolate and that obviously will make it brown . For the last layer you can use marshmallow fondant, so it obviously will taste like marshmallow!
thanks so much for your help, renea...I'll post the cake when it is finished
I flavor my MMF all the time...vanilla, almond, strawberry, lemon...clear extracts only for a white cake tho. Add the flavoring at the time the marshmallows are melted before you add any powdered sugar.
Yeah, the clear will definitely work, though they are not as strong, and sometimes you can't find them. - and I hate fake chocolate flavor -ick! LOL You could definitely try it though!
Thanks for all the help ladies. I had no idea that there were so many clear flavorings. I will definitely give it a try before the wedding.
you know, thats something ive never thought about actually flavouring the fondant! its a great idea!
Can you also flavor commercial fondant?Fondx? Satin Ice? Thanks
Has anyone ever substituted the liquid (water) in MMF with another liquid such as kirsh (cherry brandy)? I probably crazy for wanting to do this but will the brandy work and give me the correct consistency? Color won't be a problem as I will be coloring it red of course.
