Ok, so I've seen these mentioned before and I'd quite like to have a play but, having looked at the different flavours I have no idea which to try and which to avoid. If you've tried and tested any of LorAnn's flavours I'd love to know which you'd recommend?

I used the orange dream in some chocolate the other day when I piped out some palm trees. Turned out really yummy, and I don't even usually like orange and chocolate!

I use these oils to enhance flavors and am looking forward to try more. So far I've used...

Banana Creme
Chocolate (not so good)
Egg Nog (not so good)
Key Lime
Peanut Butter (not so good)
Pumpkin (not so good)

I use the cheesecake flavor to make suckers. I also have about 60% of the rest of their flavors

I have used the raspberry in dark chocolate fudge cake and frosting, and I have also used the lemon in lemon chiffon filling and lemon fondant on white cake. I really liked them both.

I love the cheesecake, it is YUMMMMMM. I just received English Toffee (which I think is new?), Raspberry and Amaretto, but haven't used them yet. I will let you know once I have tried them, I hope I am not disappointed with the English Toffee!

id love to try these too - i found them quite expensive over here (oz) and so was wondering how much you would use in say an imbc? Are they quite strong in flavour? I think ill only buy the flavours that most ppl like

some recipes call for the whole bottle (1 dram) is that pretty typical?

i tried the champagne flavour and a drop worked really nicely. We dont have LoAnne oils here (UK) so I bought mine off ebay, cost a bit more but worth it and I think the bottle will last a while!

All their advertising says that you should ony need a few drops to flavour a cake/ frosting but, as I haven't used them before, I have no idea whether this is true or not.

I find it depends on the flavor as to how much I need to add. The lime is SO powerful that even one drop is too much for frostings where as I added half a bottle of Pina Colada for a full cake batter.

I hated the cherry. Tasted and smelled like a cherry cough drop.

im using the caramel today, I used a tiny bit yesterday and it was really strong and would of been really good if that was the flavor I was looking for, thankfully today it is LOL.
