I know americolor carries a line of neon gels. Has anyone had any luck using wilton colors to achieve a neon look? Also where is the cheapest place to buy americolor. I live in florida and the only store around me is michael's and they only carry wilton. Any stores carry americolor? thanks

No neons by Wilton that I know of.

Betty Crocker makes neon gels in tubes. I found them in WalMart in the cake mix aisle. They work great and are cheap.

What neon colors are you looking for?

Wilton's Rose pink is very bright so is their lemon yellow. The green with a touch of yellow add would be pretty lime.

Does your Michaels carry the Duff colors? If so, they have an electric set, that you could purchase with a coupon. It has pink, purple, green and blue I believe.

I've read on here that Hobby Lobby is now carrying Americolors. I haven't been to ours yet to see, since I am almost always at Michaels, so I don't know if it is all or some of them carrying them.

well I was planning on buying the whole electric set from americolor. Although, all I need for my upcoming cake is orange, green, and maybe yellow. I was just trying to get around paying almost $25 with shipping. Oh and yes my michaels just started carrying duff, I'll check it out. thanks

as you know wilton doesn;t make neon colours. One of my students bought neon colours they got at Kroger. I thought the icing colours where great, and although they were the little liquid bottles i might get some myself. Very pretty colours.
