Hi!

For Black buttercream, I usually start with a chocolate buttercream and slowly add Americolor Super Black - it works like a dream, and I don't need alot of black colouring to get it a true black.

I'll bump you for the hot pink, never had to acheive that colour - yet!

Wilton's rose color always gives me a pretty bright pink color.

Tint bc brown let it sit for 1/2 hour then tint black..works for me every time...try using Americolor or CK coloring to always doesn the trick...as for hot pink my ck true red yields a pretty hot pink with like 2 drops...remember your colors will darken as they sit.

HTH

Have a great day!

well the baking store that I shop at has it.... you can order americolor or ck products (I can't remember which from Countrykitchen.com or cakesbysam.com or even kitchenkrafts.com . I get my ck colors at the nearest bakery/supply shop.

try using little squirts of red in your icing...till you get a pink color then a little more till it brightens...usually while it sits it will get brighter

Thanks once again, Do you have any suggestions on how to take a 10in cake and do stripes around it so they will come out even??

oh. sorry.

I don't know where you are, but countrykitchensa.com has quick shipping - if you ordered today, you might get it by then. Just a thought.

What brand and color of colors do you have. Let us know what you have so we can help you get this done in time. You do need to make these colors asap so they are ready by Sat.
I don't recommend using red to get pink. It just is not the same. Use a pink based paste color.
Don't judge your black until several days have passed as it needs lots of time to 'develop' the color. Some browns will give a very green cast to the b'cream, but over time it changesicon_smile.gif

ck red is what I made the fushia (hot pink) color on the cake in my avatar. So it worked for me.
