I think you should be able to get all those colours using americolor gels. the sky blue, orange(super red and electric yellow) and light bright green looks like electric green-  I have made with them and I have seen a bright pink. hope that is of some help to you.

The sheen was most likely achieved by airbrushing a Pearl Sheen on top of the finished cake. It is a pearly shen and works great! If you don't have an airbrush machine, I believe you can find it in a can.  Here are a few cakes that I have used the airbrushed sheen on.

Yep you can buy it in a can - it's fairly expensive to do it that way - but it looks great. I think my last spray tin cost me round $13. To get the electric green a little darker I just add the tiniest bit of the sky blue to it - amazing how such tiny amounts go so far in the fondant icon_eek.gif

Americolor is fantastic.  I just did a black icing that was truly black and not dark grey.  The colors are great!
