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:

  1. I would love to try the emulsions!

  2. I liked you on fb

  3. Wow, so cool. I learned something new about these emulsions. In baking, I can’t live without good quality cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Def of the darker variety.

  4. I love my ice cream scoops (big and small), I use them to make perfectly portioned cookies, cupcakes, waffles, pancakes, even the occasional scoop of ice cream ;) I would love to try these emulsions in my baking! I am working on some allergen free recipes with the hopes of one day selling my treats so that everyone can enjoy healthy baked goods. These emulsions would be so fun to work with! :)

  5. I love my pyrex dishes – you can bake with them, put them in the freezer, in the microwave, and they’re dishwasher safe! Multiple uses for one dish save space in my tiny little kitchen :)

  6. Vitamix. Easy. I use it at least once a day, usually much more often than that even.

  7. follow on pinterest and I may have pinned a couple things. My sister did too. Unknowingly. You’re such a celeb. ;)

  8. follow on instagram

  9. Oh my! I’ve never heard of an emulsion; sounds awesome. I think I’d be most tempted by either of the 2 vanillas you mentioned; I LOVE vanilla and would LOVE to try a vanilla emulsion!

  10. My Thermapen, which my sweet husband magically gave me for my birthday last year out of the blue, is going to be buried with me. I can’t tell you how I love having that little thing in my life.

  11. I have to say my crockpot (even though it’s missing a handle)

  12. Instagram – check!

  13. Pinterest – check

  14. Facebook – check

  15. the butter vanilla sounds intriguing

  16. I can’t live and/or bake without dark chocolate chips. I’m crazy addicted to anything with warm melty chocolatey chip goodness.

  17. I could not live without my Sil-pat! They make my cookies slide right off the pan and also make my cookies the perfect mix between crispy and soft! Thanks for a great giveaway!!

  18. I facebook liked you!! :)

  19. Can’t live without my blender/food processor combo from Emeril. I want to purchase a Vitamix later though once this one lives its life.

  20. I would love to try all of them, but especially the almond! My local cupcake shop makes a vanilla cupcake with almond icing and it’s my absolute favorite. I’ve tried to duplicate it with the alcohol based almond flavor but it never tastes quite right. I bet they use one of these flavors!

  21. I followed you on FB!

  22. I also liked LorAnn Oils on FB!

  23. I followed you on Pinterest and repinned something

  24. Definitely the Kitchenaid stand mixer. After that it’s REAL butter and GOOD vanilla. Last week I made brownies in a mug…mmmmmmmm

  25. I can’t live without cinnamon. It’s definitely my #1 baking supply – I have been known to buy it at Sam’s Club in bulk. And I live alone!

  26. I love my wok! So versatile: Stir-frying. Sautes. Steaming. Everyday frying. What’s not to love?

  27. I love my stand mixer! I just can’t get enough!!!

  28. Can’t live without the cookie tray. How else is my mom going to make her cookies? (:

  31. Cannot live without the Vitamix-you convinced me I needed one!

  32. Can’t bake without cinnamon and vanilla extract! mmM

  33. I don’t know what I would do without my vitamix! I use it for absolutely everything!

    i second the others who have said measuring spoons! very useful

  36. I use my cutting board that my grandpa made me everyday. I love that it’s large and moves with me whenever I move houses. I have the “butter” flavored emulsion and love using is in my protein shakes.

  37. I also followed you on twitter and tweeted about the giveaway!
