There was a post on this topic, but didn't help me. The colour wheel/how to colour icing article didn't have anything about it.
Need to make fondant hearts in this colour for this Saturday.
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The only way I know how to make it is to buy it and use it.
I've never known any way to mix it.
I mean you can use tons of rose color I think, candy pink but I don't know any mix to get it unless you start with it.
If you can get your hands on some Satin Ice pink, you won't need to add a thing.
Otherwise, the best mixture I've found is, start with Chefmaster No-fade pink. It's kind of a mauve color, but it helps 'set' the rest of the color and discourages fading. Then, mix in Americolor Electric Pink.
If you can find hot pink luster or petal dust, you can mix that with alcohol or confectioners glaze and paint your stars. Tint your star fondant pink before painting to achieve a deep pink.
I just use Wilton's rose pink gel colour and I always get hot pink. I don't need tons of it, just enough that it's just starting to get to the colour that I want - it sets in pretty nice after that.
Thanks you guys for your advice so far. DianeLM, I don't have any of the colours you've mentioned. I'll have to pop in to my shop and check again.
I've got dusky pink petal dust, and rose petal pink (thats a different colour from rose pink right?). Can I work with these and red?
