Hi everyone!

I just bought a jar of creme bouquet. It smells fantastic, but I have no idea what to do with it. Is it used like an extract, emulsion or what? Can I put it say in a sugar cookie dough or is this for creamy fillings only? Thanks for any help. I am dying to use this stuff. icon_smile.gif

I used it for wedding, birthday cakes in addition to vanilla or almond extract/emulsion. I never tried in cookies but I think will work ok too. Le me know your results.

It can be added to cake batter, too. Delish!

I use it in my buttercream frosting. Tastes really good. I get so many compliments on it.

Ditto. A lot of people ask me what is the flavoring, and when I ask them to describe it, they say that it tastes like the "old school" icing from their neighborhood bakery when they were a child. I've been told that quite a few times.

I can't wait to try this stuff.

I use creme bouquet always in my buttercream, usually 1 tsp. It's awesome, gives it a unique flavor and aroma! icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

I only use about 1/2 teaspoon in mine. You'll just have to experiment alittle and see what you prefer. I think a little goes a long way IMO
