Good luck!  

I'd suggest round pans, I think they're easier to work with.  

For coloring, I use Americolor, because I like the squeeze bottles, but Wilton has great options that should be available in any craft store such as Michael's, Hobby Lobby, etc.  A word of caution, pink is a color that stains and tends to get much deeper after sitting, so start with small amounts and work up to just below the color you want.  

There are many ways to make pretty pink princess cakes fairly easily!  Do a google search and you'll likely find step by step tutorials as well.
