I use Mccalls fondant and I am having trouble coloring it in hot pink. I bought the americolor fushia and it came out lavender.
Does anyone use Mccals fondant and know how to get a hot pink?

Also, for those of you who use nutriwhip , can I pipe 1M swirls with it? is it stable enough?

I've never used Mccalls fondant before so I don't know if this will help but for hot pink I use chefmasters deep pink.

I also have never used Mccalls fondant. I am mostly making my own marshmallow fondant. I actually made hot pink fondant last night for the first time and I had no trouble colouring it hot pink with Wilton Rose. I did however add the gel to the melted marshmallows. I remember reading on CC previously people having trouble getting hot pink. Sorry no help there.

I have never used Nutriwhip to pipe with. Is it not just like Dreamwhip? I am not sure it would be stable enough.

Where do you buy chefmaster colors, I have never heard of them.
Nutriwhip is more stable than dreamwhip but I am not sure if it is stable enough for piping, that's why I asked
I will try the wilton one and see what happens.
Thanks for your replies
