I am trying to color my fondant Hot Pink, but I am unsure on what colors to use to get the right color hot pink. Please help!

From the editor:

Hi Lysa,

The easiest way is to actually use a fuschia gel paste color, which is available either in a 12-Color Food Coloring Kit or Individual Fuchsia Gel Color.

Alternatively, you can mix your own by adding 2 drops of purple and three drops of pink gel paste color at a time. Knead the color in completely, then add more until you reach the desired shade. Remember that colors intensify over time, so you should stop adding color one step before you think you've reached your desired shade.

Good luck.
