What color (Wilton or otherwise) would you use to achieve a hot pink color for fondant/gumpaste? I'm going to be doing so bows for the top of a cake in this color. TIA

I just did a hot pink buttercream in Wilton Rose. Use quite a bit to achieve a really hot pink color.

Americolor Electric Pink

I just read that you needed it for gumpaste/fondant.. I used the same shade for a bow I made a couple months ago.

I second the americolor electric colors. They work the best. I just made hot pink the other day, I mixed mainly electric pink with a few drops of electric purple and then a couple more drops of regular red. Came out really nice. I was going for a darker hot pink so then I dusted it with claret luster dust.

bobwonderbuns (I can't type that without laughing), I haven't heard of that brand. Where do you buy it?

Chefmaster is available at most cake stores. At least it is in my area. They are called "Chefmaster Liquid Paste" colors. They come in larger bottles and their color palette is smaller than other brands but their colors are amazing.
