Lorann Flavors

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hello all! Yesterday I checked out a supply shop here in Houston and stumbled across a rack fo the Lorann flavorings. Reading through them filled my head with ideas. Here are what I am wondering:

1) How have you incorporated them? Batter? Icing? Filling? Other?
2) How many drops in 3 cups of icing? in 4 cups of batter?
3) What are some of your favorite flavor/cake/icing combinations?

I can't wait to hear!

Cheers!

PS-I passed a 20 bus convoy heading to the Astrodome yesterday. Very sobering sight. I drive by it on the way to work and saw this morning that they had opened the adjacent convention center and turned it into what appeared to be a medical type facility. I heard the Astrodome is already full.

Hi, I am going out today to buy more lorann oils. I bought the watermelon flavor for my 5yr old. Whenever I make pink frosting, then I add a couple of drops of the watermelon flavoring. It's great! I just slowly added drops until I achieved a good flavor. 2 drops to one cup??? I also tried the watermelon flavor on pink mmf. It was a big hit. Everyone agreed that the mmf tasted like pink taffy. Nothing you would want to eat a lot of, but perfect for mmf cutouts or buttercream decorations.

They oils are cheap. I intend to try a few more flavors that dd would like.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE their bavarian cream oil. I add it to every batch of buttercream that I make, even chocolate.

I too would like to try other flavors, but I am so stuck on that one. I will just need to force myself to try something else! I am sure anything I try will be great.

Good info. Thanks! One more thing...how many drops of Creme Bouquet do you add to, let's say, 3 cups of icing? Thanks!

I tried these for the first time last week. I used the Cheesecake flavor in the fondant for a wedding cake. I don't think I used enough, though, because the flavor was undetectable. Next time I'll use more!

I love the variety of flavors. And the price is great! I'm going to have fun experimenting with these in the future.

I have been wanting to try these as well! I plan on ordering this week to use on a cake coming up.

That bavarian cream sounds delish!!

Have any of you mixed flavors at all? Or is that over doing in with these?

I have yet to try them in my icing, but I do use them to flavor all my candy wafer treats. When I do my dz. rose lolipop bouquets each color has a different flavor. Its a great hit.

I would go less when using the almond oil. I made a 2lb recipe of buttercream and added 4 drops of the almond oil and I found it to be too strong, but maybe I am just sensitive to the almondy taste. I like almond flavor, but just not too almondy. icon_wink.gif

Is the 'almond oil' more concentrated than the flavors? Cause I use 1/2 of the little bottles when using other flavors and it isn't as overpowering....

Thanks!

I didn't use nearly enough in my fondant. I only put about 5 or 6 drops in 2 lbs. of fondant.
Thanks for the info everybody!

I recently bought quite a few: Banana Cream, Champagne, Cheesecake, Amaretto, Keoke(coffe) and Strawberry. I will get Bavarian next time.

So far, I've tried the banana cream in a banana cake which was pretty tasty. I have added a little bit of cheesecake in a vanilla cake/icing.

As far as Creme Bouquet, I add about 4-6 drops per 3 cups of icing.
