    A great clear butter flavoring. I use it in my icing for both cakes and cookies. Keeps the icing nice and white but gives it a great butter taste.

    Can't believe what a great price this butter flavoring is compared to the one I was previously using! I was concerned it wouldn't taste as good, but no one has noticed a difference.

    I love Shank's imitation Butter. It has a great flavor and is by far the best value I have found. We use it in our meal replacement shakes for that extra punch of flavor.

    This is a good butter flavoring. It definitely gets the job done, but it takes a little more than I would like for me to get that true butter flavor. For the price you definitely can't beat it!

    Clear butter flavoring is a must when making vegan buttercream. Even the flavored vegan buttercreams can be too overpowered by shortening so this does more than help cut that without changing the snow white color of the frosting.

    Imitation butter in butter cream icing

    This butter flavor worked great in my buttercream frosting. I would for sure recommend this brand to all my cake baking friends. Lasts a long time too

    A great price for the imitation butter, and the quality is still there. A great flavoring to use in our baking. The flavor really enhances the quality of our cakes, and it gives them an extra depth of flavor.

    This extract is nicely flavored--It doesn't taste very artificial at all! I was skeptical about using butter flavoring, but it was surprisingly tasty in my cookie dough.

    Good tasting extract!

    The price is great on these. However, I find this butter flavor to taste pretty artificial and the flavor is very mild. You need to add double to get decent flavor.

    Clear butter flavoring is hard to find at a good price. This is excellent! It makes for white frosting with a good butter taste. This is always on my re-order list!

    from Crystal Gardner Posted on

    Beautiful butter flavor love using the shanks butter flavor in my cookie recipies its my secret weapon ;) i would definately recommend this flavoring if you need a rich butter flavor

    from RaynneStarr Posted on

    Shank's Imitation Butter flavoring is a great addition to my buttercream recipe. I typically use pure vanilla extract to flavor the buttercream but adding a bit of this takes it to another level! Will definitely purchase again!

    from Baked Bliss by Laura Posted on

    It has an artificial butter flavor smell, but in icing it has a familiar and nice taste. I don't use butter in my icing, and this gives a decent butter flavor as a replacement.

    I added this butter flavor to my fondant and LOVED that it didn't change the color like some other butter flavorings!

    As with the white vanilla. I use this equally. I wish it was in larger container tho like the white vanilla. Going to reorder more and will continue to order.

    I love the Shank's brand of extracts, and really love this butter flavoring! I use it in my cakes and cookies all the time. It adds that bit of extra buttery deliciousness to my baked goods!

    from Jennie's Cake Creations Posted on

    I use this in a number of dishes from baking to pancakes and is a must have in a home kitchen. I can't find it locally, and certainly not in large jars like this. Great quality, and so glad to find it.

    I love this butter flavor. It is perfect in pie crusts, baked goods, including cookies. I add it whenever I need a butter flavor boost.
