In a 9 in round or 10 in round cake how many drops of the flavor should I use?
Good question....I have been wanting to try these drops myself. Here's a bump.
I THINK I have seen 1/8 tsp to 1 tsp. An 1/8 is just a few drops.
This may sound stupid, but what is this stuff and where can you find it?
I found a really good website that I ordered some Banana Extract and Raspberry Extract from. The website is: www.escofoods.com. I did a search on line because I needed both these flavors for 2 separate cakes and this seemed to be the cheapest place I found.
I ususally use 1/8th to 1/4th tsp per batch of cake batter - start with the smaller, taste, then add more if you feel it needs it........these are very concentrated.
The LorAnn Gourmet Flavor are super strenght flavors. I have several flavors like champagne, English toffee and coconut but I did not know how much to put in my cake. I purchased my packs from a local Cake Decorating Store. I'm not sure if Michaels carry them, well at least I have never ran across them while shopping.
Hobby Lobby carries it!
Has anyone heard of Lorann Chocolate Flavor Oil?
Did u get ur stuff from esco already?
you can also order directly from their website at lorannoils.com I did in the past and have been pleased.
Twins5485- I have seen Lorann chocolate flavor oil...haven't tried it though.
Aside from cake supply stores, I have seen Loraan oils at AC Moore and I think Michael's. Although they don't have a very big selection compared to the cake supply stores.
emilykakes- Thank you.... There is a recipe on this site for Chocolate Buttercream which I'm waiting to try but it calls for this also.... The submitter for this recipe also has a Buttercream dream that is to die for so I'm sure this will be a hit also......
I ordered from Esco Foods last Friday and I got it Tuesday afternoon. It smells soooo good. I'm so anxious to have some time this weekend to try the cakes in order to test the flavor.
I made the chocolate dream buttercream with the lorann oil and its wonderful! My oil came with a dropper. I just added drops til I liked the taste. HTH Kris
The amount of flavoring you add will vary with the flavor. Some are stronger than others and don't require as much. You just have to add a little at a time until you get the flavor you desire. I have ordered several of these flavors from ebay, but I have only used the cheesecake flavor so far.
I'm really glad that someone asked this question. I've really been wanting to add new cake flavor choices and new icing flavor choices to those that I already have. I love the *cool* and unique flavors that are in the Lor-Ann line, but I simply didn't know how much to use, etc. Great question. I figured that they would be dispensed with droppers due to them being concentrated and in such tiny bottles. I'm on my way to order via the weblink above.
Thanks again!!! Can't wait to bake up some new *samples* with the new flavors.
