I was in a Middle Eastern grocery store the other day and bought a bottle of rose water. I was just wondering if anyone has used it. I was thinking that I would make a simple syrup with some and use it as the liquid in the filling for a champagne cake..any other ideas?

How about rose fondant creams? (Don't know if you have them in America, they'r like peppermint creams). Or rose flavoured macaroons?

I use it to scent the almond paste in anything that uses almond paste -- it adds a really interesting, exotic note. It's not very strong -- won't flavor as noticeably as vanilla or another extract would.

Make your own Marzipan, use it to flavour coffee, if you drink coffee

Do you mind sharing how you make fondant cream?! Thanks!

You can make marshmallows colored pastel pink and flavored with rose water. You can also make meringues, the same pastel pink and rose water flavoring. Maybe you can flavor buttercream.

I actually have not make any of the above, I do not even know how to make marshmallows, but I have seen the pictures.

You can also use it to flavor the cookies, like rose water shortbread cookies...

How about rose water pancakes?

The rose water you buy at grocery stores is not really concentrated, so it is much much less strong than the "rose water flavoring".

I've never used it or had it-just curious if it has a "perfumy" taste?
