I am HOOKED!!!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

Finally got around to making a batch of creme bouquet at home. I have never used it before and I have got to tellyou all...I made a batch of buttercream tonight with CB and I thought I'd died and gone to HEAVEN! There is no way to describe the taste or how it enhances food. The only way I know how to state it is that is has that "bakery taste". It is really good, and a little goes a LONG way. I only had to use 1/4 tsp for one regular batch of frosting.

I'm just a little confused. CB is absolutely one of my favorites. Did you mean you made your own Creme Bouquet, or BC with commercial CB? At any rate, I love it, too!

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

I think she meant the commercial stuff. My favorite is the Princess. Now I have to try the creme bouquet

It is my understanding that Creme Bouquet varies from brand to  brand. I like the Kitchen Krafts brand and I buy it in the 8  oz. bottle. I've not tried any other and if it came in, (and if I could afford it), I'd get in in the gallon size! (Just a little hyperbole there...) I'm interested in your response when you try it.

 

I have the Princess but haven't tried it yet. I keep intending to so maybe today I'll try it in some sugar cookies.

 

Ahhhh, so much to try and so little time!  icon_biggrin.gif

It is a flavoring that I, too, am hooked on. I find it a delicious addition to my buttercream and I also use it, in addition to vanilla, in a lot of my WASCs.

I use CB in all my buttercream but I don't make it, I buy it from the supply store.  LOVE LOVE LOVE it.  Little goes a long way.

As I said in an above post, so much to try and so little time. I've thought about Creme Royale, but ended up with what I was already familiar with. Perhaps I should have purchased CB in smaller amounts and I would have been more likely to try another. I guess I'll keep the option open.

Now that I think about it I read that the Princess by Lorann is very similar to  Creme Bouquet. What are the flavors of it?

post #12 of 22
Crème Royale, Crème bouquet, Princess flavoring......so many choices. I just fake it with Vanilla, Lemon, & Almond extracts. 'course I don't do volume caking. How does Crème Royale get a Kentucky background?
