you can knead in some flavoring...I've use the butter flavor a couple of time...but have had the best results when using oil flavors.

I agree.. I have used oil extracts to flavor mine and they came out great and did not mess up the consistency either.. GL HTH

It must be you have not tasted Wilton lately. We just did a taste here in our home and Wilton did not come in last. Choco-pan, the most expensive came in first. The last place one was Fondx, extremely chemically, and Satin Ice behind that one. It had a chemical smell, but I believe that goes away when exposed to air. Satin Ice is the only one that comes in colors, so I still use it. Fonderific had a buttery taste, but we could tell it was artificial. Then again almost all butter adds a "natural flavoring" (with the exception of organic), so you can take that with a grain of salt.

But Wilton was up there in choices. I get good results when I use it, my wedding cake is all Wilton. There is no chemical smell or taste. And if you price it out, it cost me 5.00 a pound, which is half the price of the other brands. The major drawback? I can only get it in 5 lb boxes. Someday they are going to get smart and start selling it in larger packages.

To answer you question, you can definitely add flavors and it does not change the consistency.
