I LOVE butavan and creme royale. The last time I purchased them, I bought them from sugarcraft but if you've seen Heath's warning, you may not want to give sugarcraft any more business. But they are a nice option for something else.

Hi! Okay I will chime in... I don't have a lot of experience. But I just purchased a new flavoring emulsion at my local cake shop. It is called Princess Cake & Cookie Bakery Emusion. It is made by Lorann. I used some in icing over the weekend and my 16yr old niece really complimented the flavor. I bought it at Cake Carousel in Richardson- <cakecarousel.com.>

HTH. I will be watching this thread because I have been wondering the same thing.

www.earlenescakes.com has butavan as well as Orange, Lemon and Strawberry imulsions...the price is pretty reasonable as well. thumbs_up.gif

Thanks!

My vote is for Butavan as well. It makes everything taste yummy! I use it in all recipes that call for vanilla.

Here is a question? Are these flavorings clear in color? And if not what do you do if you need a white frosting.? THanks

All the flavorings I use are clear or cloudy pale yellow, so they all no color to icings.

I make Sugarshack's bc icing recipe.....it is a big batch of icing (5 pounds of PS), to flavor it I use......4 tlbs. of Wilton Butter Flavoring & 1 tlb. of French Vanilla Blend Flavoring, these flavorings were got at Wal-Mart.

I sometimes use 1 tlb. of Butava in my cake mixes, my family & friends likes the flavor in the cakes with the icing done in the flavoring combo above.

I have also use Cotton Candy by Lorann ( I think I order it from cakesnthings.com sorry I can't remember ) in some royal icing for some cookies once for my grand daughters birthday party. They tasted pretty good. I havn't tried it in my bc icing yet.

I would like to try these Flavors:

1. Wedding Bouquet Emulsion ( A Flavoring Sugarshack uses, heres a link to that thread..... http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-418353-.html )

2. Vanilla Nut Butter Oil ( My sister get this from a cake shop in Lorain, Ohio called Mary's Sweet Shop.

God Bless,
Sharon
My grand babies are the fruits in my pie, the sugar in my candy, the sweetness in my cake, the flavor in my icing, the royal on my cookies, the decoration in my design and the oven in my life that melts my heart.

I use Magic Line cream bouquet in my cakes and icing. I only add a few drops along with vanilla and it just adds a little something. I recently purchased some birthday cake flavoring and I have only used it once but it was good also. It smells like a bakery.

Is it too late to add mine? I've been making a scratch yellow cake for the past few years and only recently started adding different flavorings besides vanilla. WOW, I love the McCormick flavors, coconut and raspberry are my absolute favorites. It's very light, doesn't overwhelm the cake and goes great with just plain bc. I have also tried the banana but it is too strong while their strawberry was underwhelming (is that a word?). I tried their Vanilla butter and nut too and found that it made my cake taste like grocery store cake-no no no-no good at all.
'A waste of time' is a good example of the theory of relativity. 4 hours spent on decorating a cake is a long time, 'a waste of time', to some, but to the decorator those hours seem like minutes because they're doing something they love.

i was given a sample of the powdered flavouring that Adams do, i got their best vanilla in powder, it is great, the smell alone is yummy, even my 15 yr old son commented on what the lovely smell was. i need to get more, you can buy it from their website.
