I think cherry flavoring would still be slightly pink. Yes, it can be used in b'cream icing icon_smile.gif
How about LorAnn candy flavoring? It's very, very strong and would only need a drop to flavor a full batch of icing lightly.
Not sure if Michael's carries it but I know Hobby Lobby does.

Is he actually wanting the BC to be white? As much as I love choc.covered cherries at Christmas time I am thinking you could do a chocolate BC and add the cherry flavoring to the that since he mentioned chocolate filling.

Lorann cherry is red and will color the frosting. I like the idea of chocolate cherry frosting.

Real organic cherry extract is brown, just like all the red fruits.

Kirschwasser is clear.

Almond and cherry are very close flavors and almond extract is clear - can you use that?
