I made some pineapple filling last night (crushed pineapple, sugar, water and cornstarch), for a cake for hubby to take to work.
Fell asleep on the couch and left it on the counter (covered in tubberware).
Is it safe?
There's no dairy and had it been in the cake it would have been at room temp all night anyways?
I have to thicken it some more so I'll be bringing it backto a boil but if I need to I can throw it away and start over I will.
I've never done this before I feel like such a dork for leaving it out, I always refridgerate everything.
I don't want to make anyone sick, what should I do?
I see prepared pineapple filling at the cake store all the time at room temp.

LOL, "tubberware." Is that a knock-off brand? icon_lol.gificon_wink.gif

It should be fine! It has nothing perishable in it and it was in a covered Tupperware container. I would not hesitate to use it.

I'm definitely not a cake pro, but I think it should be fine too. Sounds delicious!

I've always called it tubberware, is it actually "tupper"? That sounds sound weird to say outloud,oh well you learn something new everyday. As far as the filling goes, I burnt it trying to reheat it so looks like I'm starting over anyways, thanks for the help!

LOL, yes it is a brand name, so it is also capitalized. Tupperware. icon_biggrin.gif
