My niece wants a hot pink birthday cake. Is hot pink or florescent pink the same thing as 'raspberry'? Not sure how to mix colors to make hot pink. The mixing chart I use lists how to mix 'raspberry' and I do not have any bright or florescent icing colors.

Americolor Electric Pink is the answer to your prayers! If you look in my photos, the zebra stripe cake is that colour - hot pink. HTH!

I use wilton's 'rose' for hot pink. (Why they call it rose and not hot pink is beyond me). You can see the color on a few cakes in my photos.

i used Kountry Kitchens Hot Pink to make my niece's cake. It took two of their large bottles, to get it that pink.

I didnt know about Americolor at that time.. icon_sad.gif

I also use Wilton's rose color. It works great for me.

On my pink and zebra cake I used Wilton's rose pink with a bit of red. Without the red I think it looks more like a Pepto Bismol pink. On my princess pillow, I used electric pink. Hope this helps some.

I have a pink cake in my photos - I used Wilton Rose for it - it did come out as a hot pink! (I really wanted a nice rose shade - LOL!)

Wilton Rose worked like a charm! I can't believe how bright it gets...LOL

Chefmaster's baker's rose also works just fine. All you have to do with any of the colors mentioned here is to put enough of it in and you'll eventually get hot pink. I use this color a lot (but don't look at my photos - I'm about 20 cakes behind on my posting!). In fact, if I'm not careful, the cakes that I actually want to be light pink turn out this way, too.

Be sure you use Wilton ROSE and not Wilton PINK. Their Pink has an orange hue to it. Makes more of a coral color than Hot Pink.
