Can you add strawberry flavoring to the Buttercream icing recipe for a strawberry Buttercream icing? Would it give it the right flavor?

Nancy - from New Market, AL

While you can add strawberry extract or flavoring to the buttercream, another great way to add that strawberry flavor is to melt 3/4 cup seedless strawberry jam or preserves, stirring until smooth. Then stir in the melted jam to your already prepared Buttercream icing.
