How do you get buttercream or any medium hot pink with no yuck taste? I have found red with no taste but can not really get the pink i'm looking for.

Americolor - Electric Pink, it's the bomb and no taste!
I find that Country Kitchen and Fondantsource have the best prices...

If you need a quick way, I've heard that Wilton Rose Pink comes out hot. I bought some for that purpose but have not tried it. I love Americolor's electrics!

I have used Wilton Rose Pink successfully. I am very sensitive to chemical tastes in icings and cake batters and I was pleasantly surprised with the Wilton pink. I think I used MAYBE an 1/8th of a teaspoon of it, if even that. Americolor is great too, but unless you have a cake shop in your area, you'd have to order it. Good luck! Remember, a little goes a long way when you use concentrated colors, so easy does it!

I really haven't noticed a taste with Americolor, whereas I do notice the taste from Wilton.

Wilton Christmas Red. It only takes a little. Make it a day or two before, make it a lighter than you want, and allow it to mature overnight. It's a vivid pink. We use it for our girls all the time.
