  • PME Black Concentrated Natural Food Colouring 25g

    Black is one of the colours that’s really tricky to get right, especially if you’re looking for an all-natural food colouring that’s a true black to make your Halloween party cakes and bakes as sinister as possible or give ultra-sharp definition to any detailing.

    Incredibly dark and suitable for colouring icing or sponge, this pure black PME food colouring from expert food colourists PME is the perfect ingredient for ensuring all the scary detailing on your creepy iced cookies and cakes comes out a convincing charcoal rather than a ghostly grey.

    Ideal for spider or bat-themed cakes – including child-friendly birthday cakes featuring cartoon favourites like Batman or Mickey Mouse – it’s also sufficiently dark for getting the high definition contrast needed for any iced monochrome masterpiece like a football-themed bake or a celebration cake decorated with crisp black musical notes.

    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 black 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 blog...

    "Worked a treat"

    I used this to make some marbled fondant, this was excellent. I will be honest it seemed runnier than I thought it would be having used gel colours in the past, but have no complaints it did what it needed to for me. I did not use it to colour anything black, so I cannot advise on the intenseness of the black

    "Proper black."

    Makes a good black without making mixture runny. Perfect

    I bought quite a few of these but sadly a waste of money as they weren't as bright or deep a colour as I needed. Good for pastels though, if that is the look your going for.

    A note from the team

    Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry this food colouring didn't meet your expectations, we hope it didn't spoil your creation.
