What kind of cake is it for? Lemon works great in mmf, but does it go with your cake? you can leave the extract out if you don't have a flavor that will compliment your cake. I'm not a fan of butter extract so I wouldn't recommend, but that's me.

Just a little bit of lemon extract gives mmf a great flavor! icon_wink.gif

Absolutely you can!! A gal in our cake club makes her own MMF and adds Vanilla and butter as base flavors. Sometimes she leaves it at that, sometimes she adds something else. Any way she does it it's delicious!! icon_biggrin.gif

I add vanilla, almond and butter extracts to my buttercream and MMf. Tastes great. icon_smile.gif
