Just experimenting, but was wondering if anyone has had any experience making a rose petal flavored buttercream? I have rose water, but we know water and grease...well they don't mix.. I make rose petal jelly, would that work to incorporate that into the buttercream for it essence? Would it work to gather the scented roses from my garden(organic) then chop real fine and incorporate? Any ideas will be much appreciated..

Maybe you could use the rose water instead of milk or water that's in the recipe.

Rose water was my first thought, but I don't see any reason why a rose jelly wouldn't work as long as you don't mind it tinting your frosting.

I use Star Kay White rose extract in addition to either rose petal jam or organic dried petals. I do not really like solid bits in my frosting, so I just use the extract. The jam and petals go into fillings. Wish I had access to fresh organic petals icon_razz.gif

ooh, this extract sounds lovely. Thanks...I haven't searched, but is this readily available? I have never heard of it.
