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.

Satin Ice makes a pre-colored hot pink. Just open the container.

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. icon_biggrin.gif

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.
