I have a bride who wants hot pink swirls with black dots and honestly, I've never had to make hot pink BC before. Anyone have any suggestions on which colors to use to get that?

Cakemom, did u have to use alot of the wilton?? Did it give it a bitter taste. I used Wilton when i made a Dora cake and it had that same shade of pink on the sides of your cake and it was so extremely bitter. How do u avoid the bitter taste?

I did not notice a bitter taste at all. I use Indydebi's recipe (with Dream Whip) so maybe that helps with the taste.

I did not have to add an unusually large amount....nothing like when you are trying to make red!

Good luck!
