So I have a cake order for a hot pink fondant cake with gold fondant accents. I'm planning on using luster dust for my gold accents, but I can't buy hot pink fondant in my town and I don't have time to order it. I only have wilting brand to choose from. Regular pink is my only option. Can I add anything to it to get it to hot pink?

These colours need to be bought..true red, blue,  black and hot pink.

If you had time I'd suggest you add a little red to your pink then a little blue (gel colours or dusts) and just use a little of your fondant to try it out...don't waste the whole batch

.Alternatively you could dust the pink with a hot pink dust?

There are some things a home baker has to buy in for such eventualities and a variety of coloured fondants is one of them. We can mix tints of the primary colours to make secondary shades, but these "hot" tertiary colours are best bought ready made for peace of mind.

Don't be afraid to tell clients things you cant do at short notice because you don't carry stock of every single colour in the colour wheel.

Wilton icing color in rose is a very nice bright pink; I would recommend using that to color white fondant.

She decided to go with black and hot pink instead. I started with wilton pink fondant and added rose. I think it turned out a good shade of hot pink. If it's not it's very close.
