I am going to attempt a parcel cake and want to put bright pink ribbon and bow on it.

Whats the best colour to use to get a really bright pink? all the pastes I can find seem to be rose or pale pink?

also

For the bow I want it to look like pink silk. I know I need to add a lustre to it but do I get a pink lustre or just a plain one?
Thanks for all your help.

Try Sugarflair Paste colours in either Ruby or Christmas Red. You can get a really nice pink with both.
