what do you mix to get a hot pink, fuscia color? I tried to use Wilton Pink/Rose and the more color I added to the fondant, the more orange it got. had to settle for a pale pink. I wanted hot pink!

I'm not sure why you were getting Orange. I've made hot pink fondant by just adding more and more pink coloring, and I was using the Wilton brand. Hopefully this will give you a bump and some more answers to your question.

Here's a color chart for future reference. http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=858073

I tried getting fuschia before and it was HARD. I never got what I wanted, but I tried everything. I wasnt looking for hot pink exactly, but the hot pink with a tad of purplish to it. Pink mixed with purple didnt do it at all. It turned mulberry. No matter what combination of pink, purple, or red that I used I could not get fushia. I gave up and went to a local bakery and asked for their help. They came up with the same dark mulberry color, but no hot fushia. If you find a real answer PM me because I was stumped.
