If you’ve never used flavorings in your frostings this is the time to try one! They add so much flavor without a lot of moisture which is important when making frosting. Too much moisture means adding a lot of sugar resulting in a very sweet frosting.
But if you’re looking for more of a fruity flavor I would recommend using freeze dried fruit (if the flavor comes in freeze dried form) WOW! Talk about tons of flavor and you also get a beautiful natural color too!

TIPS FOR A LIGHT AND FLUFFY FROSTING
- Good ingredients “real” butter not margarine
- Room temperature ingredients
- Be patient…you’ll need to whip the frosting at least 3 to 5 minutes. This will allow air to incorporate into the butter and create the lightness you want.
- That’s it! It’s really not as hard as you might think!
- 2 cups unsalted butter, softened
- 5 cups powdered sugar
- optional 1/2 teaspoon cola flavoring
- 4 tablespoons flat cola
In a medium mixing bowl add the butter beat until creamy (about 3 minutes). Add the cola flavoring, 1 cup of sugar at a time alternating with the cola until the frosting reaches the perfect piping consistency. Whip until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes).
