Ai'm making a devils cake. One of those doll cakes so indeed the frosting to be a light color so I can make a pink dress. But I want a good frosting flavor not just boring vanilla. Any suggestions? Thanks

You can vary your frosting flavor a lot just by adding extracts or flavoring oils (like LoRan's). Even if they add a little bit of color - and not all of them will - they will still be a nice pastel. In the past few months, I've used these oils to make cinnamon, orange, tangerine, lemon, key lime, grapefruit and raspberry frostings using my trusty SugarShack's buttercream (or sometimes Indydebi's - both are in the recipe section here) and adding the flavoring I choose, plus some coloring when the situation warranted it. Hope that helps!
