1 cup icing sugar, big knob of softened butter add a bit of boiling water (not much) two drops of cochineal (red food colour) and about 4-5 drops of rose essence/water, mix all with a fork till smooth.

you can buy raspberry essence at the supermarket, make an icing as normal some cochineal and a few drops of the essence.

just make a mock cream one and colour it then add the essence. Mock Cream
Cream 100g softened butter with 1 cup icing sugar. Add 1 tablespoon of milk and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence, replace the vanilla with the raspberry.
