Follow up questions...

1) How many cups in a pound of icing?

2) When using Lorann oils, do you also use vanilla or any other flavoring?

Thanks!

2) I don't add any other flavoring when using the lorann oil. It is a very strong flavoring.

One batch of medium consistency icing weighs approximately 1# 8oz and yeilds about 3 cups.

I add Lorann Oils in addition to vanilla extract

I've used bavarian creme in a pound cake. It was wonderful! I used 15 drops. I was lazy & used 2 Duncan Hines Pound cakes instead of homemade. I also used cherry in choc BCI. I used way too much in that one! My family said it took their breath away icon_biggrin.gif My son loves anything cherry & he liked it so I was happy! I made 2 batches on chocBCI & added 15 drops. Way too much. I've got champagne but haven't used it yet. Everyone I've talked to about Loran's oil said champagne is the best.

Just drop a little of the oil in your batter or icing. Mix & then taste. That's all I suggest to do. That's what I do. Everyone's tastebuds are different. I also added the normal amount of vanilla flavoring for my icing then added the oil. thumbs_up.gif

Your local cake supply store should stock them..not Michaels or JoAnns though! Local for me is about a 60 mile drive! LOL!

I just purchased 6 different oils in the small (1 dram) bottles and all 3 of the bakery flavorings in 4 oz. bottles:Creme Bouquet, Island Spice, Princess Cake & Cookie.

I found the best prices on the Lorann Oils website: lorannoils.com . The drams were 1.19 ea. and the 4oz bakery flavors were $3.00 ea. I can find limited small ones here at some shops for $1.69 ea. but I can't find the bakery flavors at all. Also, on the website, many of the oils come in larger bottles (and are much cheaper by the oz.), so if I find out that I have a clear preference I can order those. Shipping was very reasonable and they arrived here in no time. Right now, they have free shipping on orders of $60+.

I'm looking forward to experimenting!

Happy Baking!

I get the oils at my friends cake supply store. I think there under a $1 there.

I've been wanting to try these oils too. The party store where I get some of my supplies must have 40-60 different flavors of it. Everything imaginable. Now I'll have to give them a try.

I purchased several flavors recently. I've only tried one so far--cheesecake. I used it in MMF. I didn't really like the flavor--it was too artificial. Maybe I'd like it better in another type of icing.

tcturtleshell,
I have tried the champagne and it tasted like bananas to me. But I don't drink champagne, so I wouldn't know what it was supposed to taste like. LOL

Holly PJ, I didn't like the cheesecake either.

Maybe I just used too much. Are some of them stronger than others? Cause sometimes, I don't add much and it is too strong....then other times, I add more..and it isn't enough. Geesh! However, I went to Lorann's website today and they have a butter icing recipe and it tells you how much you should add in regards to your icing ingredient amounts. I think for a 4 cup sugar batch you add 4 drops.

I like the peanut butter flavor the best of all of them!!!! It is really subtle, and no one has been able to tell it is peanut butter. But I like it cause it is different.

One of my teachers told me that adding vanilla in conjunction with another flavor will kind of even out the flavors. Vanilla is a balancing flavor.

I usually use butter, vanilla and other flavor of choice combination in my icing.
