I want to make some sugar cookies. I love the NFSC recipe and I use Antonia74's icing recipe. I want to try flavoring the cookie and frosting. Would it be beneficial to switch to gemini's glaze? I can't use LorAnn's oil in Antonia's icing right? I seem to remember that you can't mix oil with RI. Any help would be much appreciated! TIA.

I wouldn't use oil, but you can certainly use extracts - I do that all the time!

Ditto. I also use fruit juices.

LorAnn oils contain no "oil" so it is safe to use with any royal icing recipe. I do it all the time. Here is the posting on LorAnn Oils' website.

"What is a Flavoring (Candy) Oil? Flavoring oils are highly concentrated flavors. The word "candy oil" has been used for many years to describe a type of flavoring that is potent enough to be used in hard candy making.-these flavors do not contain vegetable oil. Because our flavors are concentrated, they are able to hold up better when exposed to heat."

HTH.

I made a batch of RI this morning and put peppermint extract in it. It actually had a nice taste. Getting a jump on some snowflakes for cupcakes.
