When I click on your link the picture I'm getting is butterfly cookies. I don't see any cupcakes.

The cupcakes look like they are iced in regular buttercream. The roses om the CC look like they are tinted with an aqua or sky blue.

post #4 of 7's not showing the right pic....the name on the cuppies is "sweet india"...

i think it's the prettiest color of fushia i've ever seen in icing....i read later, she said she mixed it....the colors she uses are very vibrant....must be a different brand than i use.

anyhoo...those royal icing butterflies are really cool too.

Okay, I put sweet india cupcakes in the search and they popped up. They are gorgeous cupcakes. You can achieve that color by starting with a hot pink, then adding purple to the icing.

They are a very beautiful shade aren't they? In the comments several people asked how she got those colors but she doesn't answer them icon_sad.gif
I think classiccake is right. If you don't have hot pink country kitchen's got a great similar color....called Cherry Pink.

I'm guessing that she started with Electric Pink by Americolor.

I can tell the contrast and saturation was bumped up also. She even states it in a reply. All the colors are intense. Nothing a little Photoshop can't do.
