Is there a pink food coloring that does not taste bad? I have to make a hot pink cake and the customer does not want cake covered in fondant, only buttercream.

I used Wilton Rose color to make the hot pink on this cake:

I really like Wilton Pink. I usually use Americolor or Chefmaster colors, but there's nothing better for hot pink than Wilton pink, IMO.

I also prefer Wilton's brown to any other. It's the only brown on the market that does not contain any red.

I generally use Americolor for everything, but I feel like their pink has a bitter taste. I started using the CK brand called Cherry Pink, and I have not noticed a bitter taste.

I have used Americolor or Spectrum electric pink and it colors well. I have not noticed a bitter taste, but I haven't eaten a lot of it.

I have used Americolor's electric pink in my buttercream and didn't notice any wierd taste at all, and it was a great shade of pink!
