I personally don't like it. I tried it one day and I must have a weak stomach because it about made me sick. I threw the whole batch of buttercream out (it was for a practice cake). I don't know what it is, but I just can't stand it. I love cherries but not almond extract !
wow its a good thing you replyed or I would of felt all alone!
I'd try using less of the almond extract and see if you like it. A 1/2tsp of almond really helps cut the sweetness of pwd sugar buttercream. A tsp of almond in white cakemix improves the flavor. With the extracts, less is more.
Am I the only one who thinks the fake butter extract smells awful? I was going to throw it away, but discovered that a drop or two gives icing a candy corn flavor.
