Princess Cake and Cookie for SMBC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I plan on attempting SMBC for the first time tomorrow to put on chocolate cupcakes. I have a bottle of Princess Cake and Cookie and I've never used it. It smells amazing, but I don't know what flavor it will give off. So, my questions are:

1. Is the Princess Cake and Cookie a good flavoring for SMBC?

2. Does it pair well with chocolate cake?

3. If PC&C is NOT a good flavoring or a good pair with chocolate cake, what would be? Should I just stick with vanilla?

I'm just making these for friends, so I'm not trying to please a customer or anything, but since I'm trying SMBC for the first time, I want the impression to be as good as possible.

Thanks so much!

I've never used this stuff, but I just read a post on here about someone having a "soapy" flavor in her product...she had used the princess emulsion.

If you really want to use it, I'd test it first, just to be on the safe side.

Don't use it with a chocolate cake since it's mostly citrus. I wouldn't use it in your BC either. I haven't had good results with emulsions in buttercreams period. And it's artificial which is kind of gross in that kind of BC. I would use a couple of tablespoons of vanilla and even a chocolate liqueur if you have one. Creme de cacao or something like that. You can get the mini bottles at the liquor store.

I agree that it wouldn't go well with a chocolate cake. Definitely to much citrus flavor for chocolate but it would probably go fine with a vanilla cake. I've used some Bailey's irish cream liquor in my American buttercream to put on a chocolate cake and it was really good. Kahlua would probably be good too.

Is the Princess flavoring similar to Creme Bouquet?
