Alright, you guys always seem to be able to save me. A client wants almond frosting, I've never made any before, anyone have a great no-fail wonderful tasting almond frosting recipe? TIA
Couldn't do it without you guys!!!
Use your favorite frosting recipe substituting almond extract for whatever you normally use.
I actually like almond with the vanilla and butter extract.
Too me all almond can be a little strong, but mixing it with the other two helps mellow it out, but it can still be a front runner in taste.
I agree with the above. I love almond flavoring in almost everything especially as a subtle flavor. Additionally you can add Parisian Almond Coffee Creamer by Coffee Mate. I use sugar shack's buttercream recipe so I add coffee creamer anyway, so I generally play around with the different flavor options.
I definately agree w/Txas
Here's a flavoring 'recipe' that one can use in either your cake or icing or both:
1 part vanilla
1/2 part butter flavoring
1/4 part almond
A "part" is *any measure* you want to use be it a teaspoon, Tablespoon, cup, pint or gallon!
I mix this up by the cup and keep it on hand all the time.
THANK YOU all soooo much. I don't know why I didn't think of adding almond extract. Again thanks. You guys are the best on here =)
