Does anyone know of a good coconut buttercream that doesn't have flakes in it? I really want a nice strong coconut flavor also and preferably one that crusts well. I've looked on here and all the ones I have found (which haven't been many) have flakes. Thanks!

This would make a delicious coconut b/c(smbc) I haven,t tried the coconut, but now i am ready to. You could also make american b/c using these ingredients for coconut.

I use coconut extract and coconut milk if I need any liquid. Usually the extract does the trick!

Ok I'll play around with it and try those ideas! I'm not the best baker so I suck at modifying recipes lol icon_rolleyes.gif

Just one more suggestion...try cream of coconut instead of the milk in your recipe (still use the coconut extract). You can find it in the adult beverage aisle of your local grocery store, but it is not alcoholic.

I made my normal crusting buttercream recipe (I use SugarShack's) and added the Lorann coconut flavouring until it was the taste I wanted. But be careful, a little goes a long way with this one.

I have looked into those oils and maybe I will try them. I'm still new and haven't found my "go to" buttercream recipe yet so maybe I will try the one you mentioned. I'm trying a french vanilla one out this week that I found on this site. It sounds delish so I hope it works!

I second using cream of coconut with coconut emulsion (I think LorAnn oils) mixed into SMBC.

HTH and good luck thumbs_up.gif

Anyone use extract to transform IndyDebi's recipe into a coconut BC?

Also, should I use all shortening you think or butter as well?

Update!
Used Indydebi's foolproof BC recipe and transformed it into coconut BC - DELICIOUS!!!!

Replaced milk with mostly coconut milk and a small amount of whipping cream and 1 tsp of coconut extract. Yum.
