I have client who is allergic to vanilla. She wants rolled fondant on her cake and I prefer to use a commercial brand rather than make my own as it never comes out as nice as the commercial ones.
Typically I use Satin Ice. Anyone know of a brand that does NOT have any vanilla in it?
allergic to vanilla? in the first place i can hardly think of anything more cruel --omg i love vanilla--it's high on my list entitled 'if a little is good a lot is better'
and seriously, allergic? wow i've never heard of anyone allergic to vanilla before--not saying she isn't just saying wow never heard of that one --
and sorry i'm not aware of any store bought ones sans vanilla -- in that i've never really paid attention that way-- just don't know--
yes, pretty uncommon to be allergic to vanilla but she breaks out in mean hives...
Thank you any how, will keep looking.
AI found this one; it only has artificial flavour, so no natural vanilla. http://www.goldaskitchen.com/merchant.ihtml?pid=5409&step=4
I have a sensitivity to vanilla and yes, it sucks.
I would call the manufacturer and make sure there is no chance of cross contamination with real vanilla. It's not a standard allergen so no one is going to mention if it's made on equipment that also processes real vanilla. Your client may not be that sensitive, but better to be safe.
THank you - I will.
What about a really good home-made recipe without vanilla; one that behaves like a commercial brand...anyone have such a recipe willing to share?
AI never put vanilla in my fondant. Only a wee bit of good almond oil. Much better taste if you ask me.
