Hi cake girl, This is pretty much the same recipe that I have used for 20+ years. Have you tried the Wedding Bouquet flavor from B & B Cake Supplies? It's really good and I also use it in my white cake mixes when I make wedding cakes. You can get the Wedding Bouquet directly from them. Their phone # 985-542-8079.
sandeeb--Do you replace the vanilla in the icing with the Wedding Bouquet? How much do you add to the cake mix?
You can make "Wedding Bouquet" yourself by mixing 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/2 tsp almond flavor and 1/2 tsp butter flavor. If you are using it for a white icing use the clear versions.
Would love to try this recipe as I keep reading about the instability of using a butter only buttercream. I live in the uk and we are not familiar with the term "a stick of butter" Could someone please tell me what the equivalent is in oz please.
1 stick of butter is equal to 4 oz or 8 tbsp
drydzfski- THANK YOU! I have wanted to try wedding bouquet for a long time but when I tried to order it last time, all they had in stock was a 16oz bottle and I didn't want that much to start off with! Thank you so much, I will certainly write that down....
dweddings Thankyou for that info, Now I can try it out!
Hello everyone, has anyone tried King Arthur's Cake Flour for their cakes? I'm trying to find a receipe for a moist cake and I read that all purpose flour has alot of gluten and protein which cause cake receipes to be dense and somewhat dry.
Please help! Yvonne
I use this recipe all the time but sometimes use almond extract instead of vanilla or use 1/2 vanilla and 1/2 almond extract. Never have had a complaint about it.
Thank you for the wedding bouquet recipe. I will try it.
I use this recipe and it tastes great everyone loves it but I can't get it to crust. Any tips on smoothing this recipe?
@keipee - The BC linked is exactly the same as this one except that it adds 1tbsp of meringue powder. I haven't tried it yet but since the recipe calls itself "Crusting Butter Cream" I hope that it would crust. : )
this is my favorite buttercream recipe ever!!!! it spreads so well and tastes perfect with almond flavoring :D
How well does this BC do under fondant??
