that would be all of the above. It depends on what your recipe calls for. I also have used chocolate liquors, rum, grand marnier, frozen or fresh fruits, kool aid, frozen beverages. The possibilities are as big as your imagination icon_biggrin.gif and your ability to want to experiment. thumbs_up.gif

Are you substituting the extract for the various flavors or do you still add vanilla extract? My husband would love the pink lemonade icing! I'm thinking that would be in powder form, did you just sprinkle that in or substitute it in for something else?

Skip the vanilla flavoring, or other extracts when substituting. And if using liquids or alcohols, you would use them in place of water.

As far as the kool-aid, I like to add the kool-aid to the water that I add to my buttercream. It makes kind of like a syrup, since I only add 1/4-1/2 water to my BC that way the flavor is sure to get distributed evenly. But there is no reason why you cant just add it directly to the BC. Also for really intense flavor I have added two packs of kool-aid.

I would like to add real lemon juice but I am afraid it would curdle the butter.  What do you think?ō
