I use the butter vanilla emulsion. Country Kitchen SweetArt has some.

Found this a month ago, like it more than Wilton's, claim to be natural, not as strong as I would like it to be though.

I've tried a few different kinds but once I was in a pinch and couldn't find what I wanted and well....... I tried McCormicks imitation clear vanilla. It's in regular grocery stores. It's fairly cheap and it worked for me.

Hope that helps!

Thanks everyone for their suggestions. One question for those who suggested lorran's bakery emulsion....is it clear? I have some emulsions I have bought and they r not clear...I'm afraid my icing will not come out white.

Gonna check out Watkins and Adams vanilla....and hey, when I'm in a crunch...McCormick icon_smile.gif

Thanks everyone

I like the clear "natural" vanilla from Mexico. I buy a big bottle for about $4-$5 and it lasts forever! I have enough friends that have time shares down there so it's easy for me to get ahold of some.
