  • PME Red Concentrated Natural Food Colouring 25g

    Red is a notoriously difficult colour to get right with all-natural colouring but those clever people at PME have cracked it with this bright scarlet PME food colouring which holds its vibrant colour even after baking.

    Ideal for adding colour to your sponge or icing, it’s just right for Christmas-themed bakes, and would be perfect for decorating a celebration cake to celebrate a Ruby wedding anniversary, making a party cake in the shape of your favourite racing car or superhero, or even celebrating a football win with a cake in the colours of your favourite team’s strip.

    Simply add a little to icing, buttercream or sponge mixture before baking. And, as it’s highly concentrated, it’s easy to vary the intensity of your red by adding just a few drops more or less without significantly diluting your mix.

    With all-natural colouring and alcohol and gluten free.


    About PME Food Colourings

    Since securing contracts with the British Army in 1970 for supplying cake decorating supplies – yes soldiers eat cakes too! – PME (Precision Machining Engineers) have focussed their engineering expertise on producing high quality cake decoration equipment and these food colourings are no exception.

    All-natural food colourings have a reputation for not being quite as bright as their synthetic counterparts but PME have worked their magic and these little bottles really will give you a range of truly vibrant colours, without resorting to E numbers for the colourants. Perhaps it’s time to try that Red Velvet and White Chocolate Layer Cake from our website...

    "Makes Cakes Red!"

    In this day and age with all natural food colourings it can be difficult to find a red colour that is 'bake stable' and actually makes cakes turn out red after cooking. This one does the job. Makes a very satisfyingly red 'red velvet cake'.

    "Red Food colouring"

    Very disappointing as it came out pink rather than red. All the other colours in the same range came out fine except the orange which came out a peach colour rather than a bright orange

    A note from the team

    Thank you for placing your review. We're sorry to hear of your disappointment. Try adding a few more drops until you achieve the colour required. We'll be in touch to help.

    "red food colouring"

    Just used this product and was very disappointed by the colour. It certainly hasn't come out as the red shown on the top of the bottle but more of a dark pink. I had hoped to use it as part of a rainbow cake but have discarded that one and made extra mixture to work with a different colour. Very disappointed.

    A note from the team

    Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. I'm sorry that you'd been disappointed with the results, I'll be in touch shortly.
