So will the icing begin to darken as it sits, I feel like I have added enough gel petal pink for hot pink...almost the whole little container. I am making it right now, so any help would be great....i need HOT PINK.
I haven't used petal pink - I used Wilton Rose to get a hot pink - the name of the color is definitely a misnomer, but it comes out hot pink.
i have heard that the icing will darken a bit but i had to use americolors hot pink to even get close to acheiving a hot pink color. good luck. i hope it works out for you!
opps, I meant rose petal pink, is that what you used in Wilton?
Chefmaster makes a "no fade pink" that's really nice
I have never had luck trying to achieve deep colors with wilton... For pink I use Americolor's electric pink, love it!
WOuld adding a little red work?
chefmaster rose pink makes hot pink without having to use a lot of coloring
I use Wilton Rose and it takes very little of it to get hot pink. I can get a nice deep color w/o adding very much at all.
I haven't used any of Duff's colors but someone advised me to use his jewel colors for deep royal blue color. I went and looked and they also have a hot pink in another set of colors. I'll be purchasing those next time I'm at Michaels.
Give the color some time to darken but it depends on how much frosting you are coloring. The royal blue I colored was enough icing for a 6 and 12 square and it took 2 1/2 bottles of wilton royal blue. I mixed the color for 2 days! The first night I had only 1 bottle the second night I purchased 2 more bottles. The color darkened really nice after 24 hours. The cake is in my photots, dodger blue quinceanera cake..
Before I used gel colors, I just used the red liquid food coloring from Safeway or Walmart. It always got HOT pink, and never faded. HTH.
