Shades of...Pink! (Works for Me Wednesday)

Pink!  Pink, pink, pink!  PINK!!!
Forget Fifty Shades of Grey; we're talking PINK, people.  {PS...having not read FSoG, but having *heard* about it, it totally creeps me out to sit next to someone on an airplane who is reading it.  I rather NOT know that about you, total stranger.  Airplanes are for John Grisham or Michael Crichton. The end.}

OK.  Pink.  Did you know that you had so many choices?  I'm showing you here four pinks.  All AmeriColor brand. I love, love, love AmeriColor.
  • soft pink
  • dusty rose
  • deep pink
  • electric pink

Most often when I'm making pink cookies, I'll reach for Deep Pink.  It's vibrant, bright, and perfect for almost everything.  I think it has a little bit of a blue undertone. (But what do I know?)

Soft Pink is, well, softer.  In the pictures, I'm showing it pretty saturated, but I use it when I want a light, not to vibrant pink. It looks to have more yellow in it than the Deep Pink.

Dusty Rose.  Just those words remind me of tea time and wallpaper from the 1980's.  Shown here, it's really saturated, but a little lighter and is makes a *perfect* ballet slipper color.  And...roses.

Electric Pink.  This is a really fun color.  I use it when I want my cookies to SCREAM pink.  Not neon, but definitely bright.  It's Deep Pink kicked up a notch.

Of course, the colors will vary depending on the amount of icing and the amount of color you use. I never measure out icing and food coloring, but the colors you see here are a heaping 1/4 cup of royal icing mixed with about 1/8 teaspoon food coloring.  Give or take. :) for me!
