A few years ago I made almond bc; there was butter/shortening in the recipe. It made my bc taste more like butter almond (to my taste buds anyway, lol). Have anyone else experience butter or butter extract altering the taste of some of your flavored bc? Do you think butter extract or butter will alter the taste of pina colada bc?

I don't understand. Butter flavor should alter the taste. It should taste like butter. If it overwhelmed the almond then it sounds like you either put too much butter flavoring in or not enough almond flavoring.

Actually, I tasted the almond it just tasted like butter almond; it reminded me of the Breyers ice cream.

I wouldn't use the butter flavoring in pina colada icing, it will either overpower or not mix well with the other flavors. The only time I use butter extract is in my basic buttercream recipe and then I only use 1/2 tsp and 1/2 tsp vanilla. If I am making a flavored icing I leave it out and concentrate on the flavor I am trying to achieve. Butter extract has a strong flavor so all you need is a little bit. Hope this helps.
