Making my grand daugs. "cakes" one small tinker bell and hanna montana guitar, Im matching the color to each other. But my daug. in law would love the deep bright flourens. colors.

I need Pink, Lim green, and purple any ideas how to get this and in airbrush?? Also Ive asked it before and it never got answered. Know that if you use alot of wilton color that the color can affect the taste of the icing. What if your airbrushing? its it the same way? Can you get that bitter taste with airbrushing?

Thanks my CCer friends.

Well..the Americolors sell the electric colors..I use the lime green all the time.They also sell the pick and putple but I find the purple quite dark.I have never had a customer report that the icing after airbrushing was bitter.

mix yellow and green to get lime green
mix red and blue to get purple
mix red and white to get some sort of pink but it won't be a great shade.

your best bet is to pick up the electric colors. i love them. A very small amount goes a long way.

Add a TINY touch of yellow to that and you'll be closer to hot pink. Not too much though, or you'll get salmon.
