Star Kay White Food Flavour Extract - 60ml Rose

Product number: 16327

Delicate as it is, rose must be one of the most recognisable and quintessentially English fragrances but it’s still a pretty rare ingredient in the British baking repertoire. So if you fancy adding a surprising floral twist to your bakes and desserts, why not try this Pure Rose Extract made from finest Bulgarian rose oil? Perfect for the icing on a wedding cake, rose also pairs well with chocolate, vanilla and nuts.

"be very careful"

star star star star_border star_border

A great product, have had it a while BUT be very careful, I have just used this to make Turkish delight and as it hit the hot mixture it started to spit and boil over the sides of the pan! fortunately I have quick reactions and moved away from it until it settled down but lost about half of the batch of Turkish delight all over the hob. Very messy, potentially very dangerous and very little left to eat. I think it should have a safety warning on the bottle.

support_agent A note from the team

Thanks for the review and taking the time to speak to me. This is not something the suppliers have heard of before and replied to our query to say - The alcohol flashing off is completely normal, but the flame should be off when this is added, stirred vigorously until it is incorporated, then turn the gas back on for about 5 minutes thereafter.

"very rosy posy"

star star star star star

I used just three drops (being rather cautious) in a six six and three sponge mix and the result was very subtle and delicious, not really recognisable as rose used like this but just a gentle flowery flavour. next time I will try just a couple of drops more as the rose oil in the flavouring is very 'rosy'. can't wait to try the orange blossom too!

"Rose Flavour?"

star star_border star_border star_border star_border

Having had great success with a violet essence (different manufacturer) which needed only six drops to a mixture that made 15 large sweets, I was very disappointed with this. I bought it to make Rose Fondant sweets but had to use so much to get the slightest hint of rose flavour into the fondant that the bitter alcohol taste was overwhelming. Given that there is 99% alcohol to 1% rose oil AND water the rose content is negligible. The lavender essence is slightly better and I have not yet tried the vanilla I bought at the same time, but I would not try any other flavours in this range

Thanks for the review and taking the time to speak to me. I'm sorry that the extract didn't meet your expectations. I'm glad I was able to help.

"Heavenly cakes!"

If you like Turkish Delight, then do try this rose extract. I recently made a 6oz Victoria Sponge mix with one teaspoon of rose extract, sandwiched together with raspberry jam and some vanilla buttercream - totally delicious. One teaspoon of extract in the mix gave just the right rose note without being flowery. Next time, vanilla sponge, strawberry jam and rose buttercream!

"Has to be tried!"

star star star star star

Having tried, to no avail, to purchase this elsewhere when Lakeland stopped stocking this, I am delighted to see this back. It's simply wonderful added to any sponge mixture. Try it in a Victoria sponge, filled with double cream and fresh strawberries (lovely, if inauthentic) or in cupcakes, topped with fondant icing and crystallised rose petals.
