I'm in the middle of making hot pink icing and it's not turning out. I added regular Wilton pink and a few drops of Americolor red and it looks mauve. I don't have time to run to the store for the perfect coloring. Is there anything that I can do to change the color from mauve to hot pink? I do have the Wilton white white if I needed to use that at all. Any advice?
Wilton Rose in large amounts makes hot pink... do you have that?
If you check my latest cake, I used rose coloring on roses and border.
No, the only pink/red that I have is Wilton regular pink, Americolor red red, and Wilton red (no taste). I may have to run to the store after all! Thank you for helping!
Using the butter flavour crisco in your BC will give a fluorescent look.
Wilton rose will work. Also is you mix in a bit of christmas red it brightens the overall look. It Looks great on top of black icing!!
Ok, I'm off to the store to get Wilton Rose. I just hope they have it! What would you use as an alternative if it isn't available?
I was able to get the rose color and it worked perfectly! Many thanks to all that replied!
I just did my daughters b-day cake in hot pink. I used Wiltons gel Icing Colors in Rose. It took about a teaspoon to get hot pink but the flavor was terrible! It was a cute cake but it tasted really bad. Just wanted to let you know before you make the same mistake.
Thanks for the warning. I didn't have to use very much, however the icing was already mauve when I started. Maybe that helped.
