Can someone tell me how to get icing and fondant in really bright colors? Specifically, I would like hot pint and neon green. I know I've seen it on cakes, but when I shop, I don't see anything quite that bright in the color aisle. Thank you icon_smile.gif

Hi not sure if I can be of any great help as I am learning myself, but I sat through a demo by Debbie Brown where she mixed yellow with green to get a far brighter green colour than the standard you buy. What I'm guessing is that maybe you start with one colour and add another to get desired shade. Only other option may be to see what pastes are on offer, again I just have several normal ones but maybe neons are on offer? Then you can simply dye your own. Good luck!

I swear by Americolor gels. You can get them in "electric" colors and their pink is so vibrant without using a ton. They can be found online at most cake and cookie decorating sites.

Definitely Americolor - they have the neon line. Check out the green on my masked ball cake.
