I need some tips on getting a deep hot pink color using MMF. The recipe I use actually uses marshmellow fluff instead of melting the marshmellows. I read that Wilton Rose pink obtains a deep hot pink, but I am not getting it to come out to anything but plain pink. Any suggestions? Or is there another type of coloring I should try? I have a birthday cake in July and a wedding cake in August that both want that shade.
I had to make hot pink fondant once, but only a small amount and it took a whole 1/2 oz container of the wilton rose coloring. I also added a little bit of violet and red just to darken it. I don't know that adding those really helped but eventually I got the color I wanted.
I use Wilton rose.
Try Americolor Electric Pink.
Satin Ice makes a pre-colored hot pink. Just open the container.

well played...lol i was going to post the same thing, im using the Fondarific Hot pink on a sex in the city cake this weekend
I just made some hot pink fondant this weekend and i used betty crocker neon gel colors. I didnt think it would work but each neon color worked well. You can see the cake in my pics. It was a last minute cake and i had the gel colors in my cupbord from easter eggs.
I would rather make my own fondant. It's cheaper and I don't like the taste of premade fondant.
Thanks for the suggestions , I will try the betty crocker and the americolor electric pink that was mentioned.
leah is right.... for ceratin colors... like hot pink... red... black... it's just better to buy it already colored....
I bought a really bright pink almost neon pink luster dust and petal dust and when you paint it on... it's REALLY BRIGHT..., so u can also airbrush the color on...
I would go precolored for a large amount but I use Americolor Electric Pink for small amounts and it works great!
When I made the bright pink for the cake in my picture I used 2 Tbsp of red food coloring instead of water when I made my MMF. You could always add more color after if it's not bright enough.
