I am using a BC mix for cupcakes (French Vanilla) and was wondering if I could add Lorann oils to it (like a rasberry or banana creme) they are just for us at home but I dont want to ruin a batch if its not going to work or taste gross. Thanks!
Yes, absolutely. Depending on how many you're making and how intense you want your flavor to be, you can add one or even two drams of it. No ruining it at all! Try adding complementing flavors, one to your cake mix and one to your icing (such as raspberry and cheesecake, or rum and eggnog, or something along those lines) ... there's a great thread on here called "Help! Gourmet flavors" if you need ideas. HTH!
I usually add additional extract or flavoring to all my boxed/doctored recipes to rev up the flavor a bit.
LorAnn oils are very popular with CC members for use in both cake and frosting - so I'd say go for it!
LorAnn Oils has some recipes on their website that might be of interest:
