I use the Americolor Electric pink~ I didn't need to add very much and it gave me a very hot pink.

Go to Sugarpaste Crystal Colors and get the hot pink. If you can't tell then e-mail Beth and ask for the hot pink. It is a powder color and it stays hot pink. You might end up using part of a small bottle. Add powder colour to icing sugar ( sifted( then do the usual mixing. I find these colors work well on royal icing, fondant and buttercream. I like to call it barbie type pink.

I've had great luck with Americolor hot pink as well. I consider it "barbie pink". Good luck!!

Americolor Electric Pink for sure! Check out the crown in my photos...airbrushed with it.

If you are in a pinch, Duff has a great electric pink. Michaels carries his brand.

Wilton Rose is also not bad, if you cant find Americolor near you

Hobby Lobby carries Americolor...cheaper than a local cake supply store. I used 2 drops for my BC last week and it was very pink!
