Notes
I love coconut baking emulsion.
Baking emulsions are flavors suspended in a water base vs an alcohol base and taste delicious. I use LorAnn's baking emulsions. They are available online at their store or amazon. I often find them in cake and baking supply stores, Ross, Tj Maxx, Home Goods. If you are unable to locate it. By all means use coconut extract.
