Emulsions vs. Extract

  • Emulsions have a more potent, robust flavor that will not bake out. They are alcohol free.

  • This buttercream is not quite as sweet as most American buttercream’s. It also does not crust over as much as standard American buttercream.

  • Since there is less crusting this means that this buttercream is less likely to crack......very important point.

  • This buttercream does have a slight orange flavor due to the orange emulsion. However you can use any flavor emulsion or extract you want.
