I achieved hot pink icing (super bright) with red coloring. I just added it a little at a time until I got what I wanted. Took some tinkering but. . . I got there.

Americolor does have hot pink and Chef Master color has electric pink.
Both come out very bright and vibrant. ( see the hot pink Barbie cake in my profile)

I use americolor electric pink and I have been very happy with it! You can order it right here from cake central. They usually have it on sale and shipping is fairly fast.

I also use the Americolor electric pink. It is less "orange" then the wilton reds and pinks. It also makes a lovely regular pink but you can only use the littlest bit.

Thanks everyone!

I was looking and on CC and Americolor electric pink is out of stock. icon_cry.gif Do you think fushia would work just as well as electric pink? I really need to order right away.

Thanks again, Sherri

TOday I used the Rose (wilton) and it came out bitter icon_confused.gif and HOT pink icon_surprised.gif so if there is a not taste rose I'd try that.

Electric pink by Americolor , you can use it alone, or add a little fuschia ( also Americolor)  to it :) here you go

 Or you can purchase the electric pink   from GSA, or buy it from Hobby Lobby , I recently saw they carry these colors . The fuschia color has more blue in it . Maybe you can try mixing it with some regular pink , just add very little and see what it looks like . HTH :)
