I'm looking for Dark Pink Sanding Sugar. I have CK Sanding Sugar in "Pink" and it's a little too neon for my purposes. I'm looking for something closer to a fuchsia or very bold dark pink. Does anybody know of another brand that might make that color? Thanks!

You can always make your own...just put some granulated sugar in a ziplock bag, add a few drops of color (I usually thin the gel colors with a bit of vodka to make them go into the sugar better), seal the bag and then squeeze the bag until the color is mixed through the sugar. Spread it on a baking sheet to dry for a couple hours.

I tried that and it was a little clumpy when I was done. I didn't even think about drying it out! Good thing I didn't throw it out...I'm off to dry it out right now...Thanks!

My sugar came out perfect. Thanks again for the tip!

Is there any issues with the sanding sugar bleeding on icing?

Never happened to me so far, even with dark purple or navy sugar.

Oh, forgot to mention, if you want extra sparkle, you can add a little pearl dust to the sugar once it's dry.
