Absolutely DO NOT BUY! This colouring DOES NOT WORK AT ALL... it literally makes whatevery you put it in look like grey/beige sludge. I wish I had read the reviews first. Absolutely shocking that this is still on the shelves.

I also wish I read the reviews, cake went grey, I will be asking for the cost of all ingredients. DO NOT BUY THIS.

Useless for red velvet, useless for char sui pork.

AVOID. Absolutely disgutsing smell taste and colour. I had some before that I tried on cake mix, had to throw out cake and food colouring thinking it must be off. bought a new one and exactly the same. The smell is foul and the colour is a horrible rusty brown. YUK

This was absolutely dreadful. I looked at the reviews before but thought i’d give it a try, see if it was as bad as people had said. I can confirm that it tainted the cake slightly, but not red. And i used the WHOLE bottle.

Do not buy

Ruined my granddaughters birthday cake! I bought the red, green, blue and yellow to make a rainbow cake but none of the colours came out right. The red looks more like a sludgy grey when cooked. Used over half the bottles to try to get the colours right. Will buy the more expensive branded food colouring next time.

Not red, turns icing pink

1 stars

This food colouring was awful. I was using it to colour ready roll white icing and it turned it pink. I wanted a bold red. I continued to add more and more but the icing got stickier and the colour remained pink. If you want a red food colouring this won't work.

Does not work

This sadly did not work for my cake recipe, it did not turn the mixture red at all.
