This may be a silly question but how do I make "blush pink: is it just like a pale pink ? I use wiltons performance color system to dye my frostings. Any help would be appreciated :)

Yes, it's just a lighter pink.  Maybe start with a small amount of frosting, add pink, mix and then add the tinted frosting to the white until you get just the shade you're looking for.

If it's for a wedding or adult occasion you might try a smidge of ivory (or yellow or brown if you don't have ivory) to make the pink a little more sophisticated. And if it's still too girly or clean, a tiny bit of green will mellow it out. I usually mix a more concentrated version so I can get the tone I want then mix it back with white.
