    I bought Fiori Di Scilia from King Arthur Flour.  I made a couple of cakes with this extract.  This extract tasted terrible!   On their website theirs a lot of good reviews for this stuff.  Is their anyone else that also don't like the taste?

    on of the reasons the oils and extracts taste bad is cuz all you have is the smell

    its a essence mixed with alcohol

    i remember different degree / percent of alcohol has different names

    like

    xxx oil

    xxx extract

    xxx essence

    or something

    like 20percent

    30 50 etc

    Did you taste it after it was mixed in the batter then baked into the cake ?  because if you taste it directly from the bottle,  then,  OF COURSE it will taste terrible..  There was no mention as to when you tasted it.  Before  baking or after.

    She made a couple of cakes.

    So I assume it was baked off.

    After the cakes were baked they tasted terrible.  I have been using a lot less amount of extract and I still don't like the taste of the baked goods.  King Arthur did refund my money back.
