SO....I'M NEW TO CAKE DECORATING AND I HAVE A CAKE TO DO THIS WEEKEND. THE CUSTOMER WANTS HOT PINK! HOW DO I GET A HOT PINK COLOR? CAN YOU BUY IT AS 'HOT PINK" OR DO YOU MIX COLORS TOGETHER. ALSO, ANY TIPS FOR COVERING SQUARE CAKE IN FONDANT?

I'm new at this too, but I have been able to get hot pink from only using the Rose color from Wilton. Just keep adding it in small quantities until you get the colour you want. If I remember correctly it gets darker after some time. Good luck on your cake!

Can't help you with the coloring part but to cover a square cake with fondant, do the corners first and then the sides.

I also am new but I just put a ton of pink in to make it hot pink. As for the fondant, start at the corners and smooth toward the centers. That's all I have for you. Sorry! Best of luck and make sure you post a pic!

I have found my fave. hot pink is actually a good amount of soft pink by Americolor. I think it makes a great hot pink without using a ton of color!!

Do a search for the frosting color chart they have here at CC. It may give you the combination of colors to make your hot pink!
