i need a really bright pink but i always end up with quite a dull pink. i would love to know is there a certain colour i can buy to do this or do i have to mix the colours i use the wilton concentrated pastes to colour my fondant.
any advice would be much appreciated.

I bought some electric pink Americolor off ebay and it gives a nice hot pink colour, I used it on the disco theme anniversary cake i did last year, i only used a bit and got a lovely colour.

Just type americolor into the ebay search under cake decorating

I agree, Americolor's Electric Pink is great. I used it on the topsy turvy in my photos. Much better than Wilton's and easier to use icon_biggrin.gif

wilton's rose in the gel colors is great for hot pink.

Don't know how y'all feel, but I'm ready to throw out all my Wilton colors after I discovered Americolors! They are wonderful! I can actually get real black and real real red fondant with no trouble.

Americolor Electric Pink gel color is good for coloring fondant. But if you have an airbrush, you can get a true hot pink with Americolor Electric Pink airbrush color.

I really like americolor too but they are hard to find in my area so I use wilton colors too. For a hot pink I use just a smidge of the wilton burgundy color. It makes a really nice vibrant pink when you only use a tiny bit. icon_smile.gif
