I've found that the Wilton Pink by itself gets to be rather bright when you add enough of it...

Hi Madge...Wilton Rose will give you Hot Pink..and it doesn't take alot of it either. Wilton Pink has an orange tint to it and will never be Hot Pink no matter how much you add. Do a little "color test" take a couple of small balls of fondant and add the Wilton Pink to one and the Wilton Rose to the other. You'll see exactly what I'm talking about. thumbs_up.gif

Americolor Electric Pink is also Hot Pink but it takes more than the Wilton to get the right shade and it seems to leave an aftertaste....to me anyway.

It may be Wilton Rose that I'm thinking of... It's late, and I've had a few glasses of wine with dinner this evening. icon_wink.gif

agree robin! Americolor does leave a bit of an after taste cause you use a significant amt more than the wiltons ( even though wiltons gel isn't a fan of me -visa versa )

& if it isnt obviously ( cause it wasn't to me for the first time try @ hot pink..) do small portions & combine :] as the color develops your hope begins to come back. HAHA i'm a p/t baker - it might only be me but just a fyi from the young'n in southern cal goodluck!

Well...I'm jealous. I don't even remember how long it's been since I've had a "few glasses of wine" or a glass of wine for that matter icon_lol.gif I don't drink because I just don't care for it but I do like to have a glass of wine with my dinner occasionally....I think I'm long...long overdue. icon_lol.gif One glass of wine for me is my limit....I'm a "cheap drunk" icon_biggrin.gif

illustreeous..Wilton gel isn't usually my choice for tinting fondant/icing...but the Wilton Rose IS the best I've come across to get the perfect Hot Pink. thumbs_up.gif

Madge...whatcha working on??? Trust me....on the Rose... icon_lol.gif

I used Americolor soft pink to get the hot pink roses on the bassinet. I have tried deep pink and don't like the color. I was surprised how bright soft pink can get and I really like the outcome.

I'm going to try that next time that I need hot pink...I bet that it doesn't have the "after taste" that the electric pink has either.

Americolor makes an Electric Pink color that works great in Fondant. I use Americolor for just about everything.

I used Americolor electric pink to get this color. It did take quite a bit. Honestly I never thought to taste it after but the consistency did change slightly.

That's funny Madge...me too..I don't drink so one glass of wine and I'm literally buzzed...I'm not kidding about being a "cheap drunk". Can't wait to see your cake.
