Default Not 'Bake Stable'?

Hi all,

Have just made a batch of cupcakes to cheer myself up. Thought I'd put a bit of pink food colouring in to make them pretty...after they had been in the oven and were out cooling I noticed the colouring says it is 'not bake stable'. Does anyone know what this means? Can I eat my cupcakes?!

TIA

It means that the food colouring compound may break down when heated. I'm sure that they'll be fine to eat, as the colouring wouldn;t be able to be sold if they weren't.

Are they still pink, or has the colour changed?

I would probably do a taste test.....

In fact - if you want me to do a taste test for you I am happy to.....just don't expect many cupcakes back

I think they will be fine, Benchyboo.

Thank you Jo and Penelope Penguin, the cupcakes were still delicious, despite being normal colour underneath and pink-ish on top.

Thanks again!

It means (rather daftly) that it might not be the same colour or texture after you've baked it as it is before you've baked it.

It's safe to eat.

*Sigh* who are these people that write labels like that, why bother, can there honestly be anyone on Earth who expects the colour of a cake to always be the exact match to the colour of the mix? That's nearly as good as my all time favourite... On a cigarette lighter a label waring that it was both flammable and not a suitable toy for children... Noooo Really?
