It's not hard to order online. I've also found it at cake supply stores. Get a small bottle. It's cheap and it lasts a long time because a little goes a LONG way. I get the CK Cream Bouquet.
here's a site:

Is that Tablespoon or teaspoon?

I think its a tsp cause usually they will put a lowercase t for tsp and uppercase T for Tblsp....

Do many of you use creme bouquet? I tried it once and didn't care for the taste almost perfume like to me.

I use it all the time. Just don't use much because it is VERY potent. It's the secret to my cakes. I use a little less than a 1/2 tsp to Betty Crocker French Vanilla, Lemon or Strawberry box cakes and I swear you will think they are scratch. I found out about it at the bakery I worked for. I put a little in some buttercream the other day and oh my goodness! So good. A little orange or lemon zest added and it would have been a perfect citrus frosting.

I didn't like the WB flavoring the first time that I used it - thought it was 'perfumy.' Based on other's comments, I probably used too much. To reinforce my belief - last night I blended the buttercream with wedding bouquet flavoring with some other that was flavored with almond extract - and a little too strong to suit me. The resultant blend was delicious! I'm definitely going to use the WB again... but probably less than half of what I did before.

I use CK's Creme Bouquet. And thanks. Yes, I felt a connection to 'tequilla cat' so I had to use it. I tried to make my own, but putting a sliced lime on a cat's head is a lot harder than it looks! icon_wink.gificon_lol.gif
