AI was in the middle of making frosting and I noticed my Wilton's clear vanilla has a brown tint. Does this mean its unsafe to use? I tried to search for an answer on the web but could not find an answer. Thank you in advance :)

i wouldn't use it if it was mine--can't say if it's bad but it's weird and that's enough for me to discard it-- and i don't know about the prices of that but you might want to return it where you bought it too

Harrumph.

 

Clear "vanilla" is a weird enough concept to begin with. Clear "vanilla" that's no longer clear . . . .

I'm with James on this one.  It is a bit of an oxymoron.

Thanks, "cazza1"; I'd rather have frosting that's off-white from using real vanilla (and real butter), than frosting that's stark white and tastes fake.

Not really weird...I had it happen before.  It wasn't Wilton brand though.  It was a while ago...but I believe I tossed it.
