If you haven't opened the CK, take it back and get the ML! They even LOOK different! (And the ML is heavenly. I've never eaten the CK to my knowledge, but it smelled... interesting.)

Well....I can't really take it back. I got it in Kansas City while we were on a short vacation. Maybe I'll bite the bullet and try small amounts like zubia suggested.

rcs, I'm on my second bottle of CK brand creme bouquet. I bought the small bottle first to try it then went back for the bigger bottle. I love it!! I've used it in my white cakes and my bc and everyone who's tasted them has really really liked the flavor. I'm not telling anyone what the flavor is, that's my secret, but I sure like the stuff. It seems like a buttery citrus flavor to me. Everyone has different tastes, but you can't just go by how it smells in the bottle. When I first got it I put a small amount in some bc to try it. Personally I would never use a new flavor for the first time in anything for a client. Better to try it in something for the family or co-workers to check it out and get opinions.

P.S. What cake store did you go to in KC? You might have told me before but don't remember right now. I go to George's Hobby House in Lawrence. Check them out if you ever go thru that way. It's on E 23'rd, behind Hardee's.

Don't be leery! The key is you only need a very little bit. If you use too much, you change the flavor of your product. Remember, you don't use it to flavor your cakes or bc, it's to enhance the flavors of your cakes and bc. I use both ML and CK brands. They are slightly different from eachother, but both good IMO. I love the stuff!

CarolAnn--I found 2 cake supply stores in KC. The first one was Bakers Rack in Lenexa. The owner wasn't well, very friendly. The second was I believe, Sweet Inspirations. They were much friendlier there! I'll have to check out George's Hobby House next time I'm up that way. Thanks!!

so...should I still go with my regular flavorings, and then add creme bouquet in addition to that?? I just bought some too and have yet to try it!

That's what I do and it seem to work fine. I have a bc recipe that calls 1-1/2 tsp vanilla. I add 1/4 tsp. cb to that. And I use penny's sugar cookie recipe as is and add 1/2 tsp. cb to that. (princess flavoring instead is nice in the cookies too).

My Creme Bouquet also smells kind of citrusy - I find a little goes a long way - I use a touch of this with my clear vanilla, butter emulsion in my frosting and my 2 part cookie glaze concoction.....The brand I use is also the brand I sell. If anyone is interested, you can email me. The clear vanilla is the BEST I've ever tried and love the creme - I only sell one line of flavorings......no furniture polish here...ha,ha......

I think you either love CB or hate it. Personally, I hate the smell, but I tried it in Penny's cookies for a baby shower and everybody devoured them...ended up getting a few cookie orders after that, too. Gimme plain ole vanilla and almond extract any day. cowboy.gif

I love the taste of the Creme Bouquet flavor. A little goes a long way however so be careful.
