Not sure about the filling flavor but for the cake you could really do any flavor and color it. I would do strawberry or red velvet (pink velvet icon_confused.gif )

You could try this:

I'd use a white cake mix because the yellow mix might change the color from a true pink to an orangey color. If you're working from scratch, I'd probably try to use the old fashioned unweetened mix in the packets so you don't change the sugar balance of your recipe.

HTH and if it works I'd really like to know. I've used jello mix with mixed success that I think is due to upsetting the sugar balance of my scratch recipes.

Just to add: I have used tropical fruit flavored kool aid in buttercream. The resulting buttercream was an intense pink color with a distinct bubble gum flavor.

I would use Macsmom Wasc recipe in vanilla or a strawberry recipe & add a couple drops of pink gel color. I prefer Americolor.

WOW! That's **A LOT* of KoolAid used icon_sad.gif One pkg would be more than enough.

To OP: find out what flavor the customer wants. Making a strawbery or cherry or whatever might not be what they want. Just adding a bit of food coloring will give you a nice pink cake from a white mix.

Here's a Wilton thread on the same lines with the kool aid:
