Has anyone out there used the amoretti products? I just got my free samples today and was very please that I received a bunch of them, but when I read their formula for how to use them I am totally confused. Just wondering how anyone else made out with them.

I received their free samples about a year ago and I liked them and still have some left. I didn't measure - I just added whatever flavor I wanted and then tasted the icing or the batter and never had a problem with adding too much. I liked their strawberry and raspberry and the chocolate. I know that was not what you are supposed to do but I was not going to be weighing anything. I did toss some of the stuff they sent as I knew I would never use it.

The product is too expensive for me to use but I did enjoy the samples and the representative that I talked to was very nice. But once you get the samples they do call you and want you to order from them.

Yeah I took one look at the formula and the prices and I just started to laugh. I couldn't believe how expensive they were. And as for the formula, I'll probably just do what you did and play with it. I'm not a mathmatician-lol

How did you guys get the samples? I think some of the high end bakers use it though

I LOVE Amoretti!! Wouldn't think of using anything else. They're expensive, but worth every penny. Just give them a call and ask for Arda. She's great and will send out samples for you. Also, if you attend IBIE this Fall in Las Vegas they are usually a vendor. You can sign up for samples at the show.

Hi! I use Amoretti products for some things. I highly recommend their extracts..the orange is amazing! It is a little pricy, but a little goes a long way. I use about a 1/ tablespoon for a 12"-3" high cake. I got a hold of them by their website. I did receive the sample kit...they last a while.

i also just received samples. i do have a scale but it's not digital. I guess I'll look into the price for that. I'm really excited about trying these. Now if I could just understand when it would be beneficial to use the compound verses the extract.
