In reading the recipes here on CC, I came across the Foolproof Crusting BC. There are two ingredients, Brite White and Creme Bouquet.
I googled these two products but I cant seem to find them. Can anyone tell me more about them and where I can find them?
Also can I omit the Almond extract? My family has serious nut allergies.
Thanks in advance for all your help.
brite white is an icing color
and creme bouquet is a flavoring
i like to shop at country kitchen sweet art
as to the almond flavoring, i am not sure, but i am guessing it would be fine to just use a vanilla extract.
I'm new to cake baking, taking Wilton Course 1, and thought that bright white was the coloring, it is not. Americolor makes a color called bright white, but in terms of the bc recipes, this is a different product. Here is what I found from the internet:
"Brite white is a white fudge base that adds flavor, volume and gives you a less greasy icing." here is the link: http://forum.kitchenaid.com/forums/post.asp?method=ReplyQuote&REPLY_ID=10977&TOPIC_ID=3075&FORUM_ID=33
The link also included information about where to purchase. I live in Milwaukee and went to a local cake supply store and they didn't carry it and it seems to be nearly difficult to find on the web under the name "brite white."
My daughter has a milk protein allergy, so most likey I can't use this product, but I have seen it used in a lot of bc recipes.
Hope this helps!
Angel White icing base can be used as a substitute for Brite White icing base. (Google Angel White.)
Snow White icing base and creme bouquet are available (in bulk) from www.nationalflavors.com
Your local cake supply shop might be able to order it:
the windbecklers did sell it at one time.. roland and marsha winbeckler... can,t think of the web site right now though..... hth
