I am making a red velvet cake and want to know if I can use pink icing color in the cake mix since I don't have red icing color. I really don't want to buy a red one when I'm only going to use it once. I use pink more.

Yes, you could definitely use pink icing color in your cake mix. Call it a pink velvet cake, and invent something new!  It could be the next big cake trend!
