I think Butavan is so good if I had enough I would bathe in it. It's delicious mixed in with actual cake or buttercream. It has a very distinct buttery vanilla flavor-almost like butterscotch but when mixed it isn't as sweet. I always have it on hand and use it in all of my icings-Swiss Meringue, powdered sugar, whipped ganache, whatever. I love it. It is thick and gloppy but that just makes it easier to measure.
