Baking Supplies Giveaway – For Two Winners

I recently received these bakery emulsions from LorAnn Oils.

You may be wondering what is a bakery emulsion?

  Emulsions are water-based, alternatives to extracts.  The flavor is micro encapsulated in natural stabilizers and suspended in water.  This encapsulation enables the flavor to not lose its integrity when exposed to high heat, which means you can use baking emulsions instead of extracts with better results.

LorAnn has an amazingly diverse lineup of emulsions from Red Velvet to Rum Bakery to Coffee.

I plan to use the Red Velvet Emulsion in Fudgy Nutella Brownies and make Red Velvet Nutella Brownies.
When it comes to flavoring, professional bakers almost exclusively use emulsions over alcohol-based extracts because:
Emulsions have a more potent, robust flavor
Won’t “bake-out” when exposed to heat
Water-based (No alcohol taste)
Gluten Free & Sugar Free
If your recipe calls for 1 teaspoon extract, substitute 1 teaspoon emulsion

Use emulsions to flavor:



Sweet Bread & Pastries

Frosting & Glazes

Fondants, Fillings, & Cream Centers

Princess Cake & Cookie Emulsion can only do good things for Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting.

Not only does LorAnn sell emulsions, but they have a whole line of premium vanillas.

How amazing does Tahitian Vanilla sound?

I was fortunate enough to receive a bottle of Madagascar Vanilla.

I adore all things vanilla and this is fabulously delicious. Smooth, rich, potent, wonderful.

I love adding vanilla extract to just about anything and everything I make, and usually double the amount of vanilla in most recipes.

I’m excited to try the new vanilla in Puffy Vanilla and Peanut Butter Chip Cookies.

The almond emulsion is begging to be used in Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites (No-Bake, Vegan, GF) because that way you get peanut butter and almond flavoring in one.

Princess Cake & Cookie Emulsion and vanilla extract are going to be a must-try in Baked Cinnamon Bun Donuts with Vanilla Cream Cheese Glaze, aka Cinnabon-style cinnamon rolls in donut form

There will be two winners chosen in this giveaway.

Each winner will receive a 3-inmulsion prize package containing one four-ounce bottle of each of these flavor emulsions:


Princess Cake & Cookie

Butter Vanilla (not pictured)
