Icing Color Chart
When mixing color always mix a small amount of color to experiment. Start with base color and then add very small amounts of secondary color. Be sure to mix enough color for the cakes to be decorated as it is difficult to match an exact color.

ANTIQUE GOLD Add just an extremely small touch of Leaf Green to Golden Yellow

AQUA Sky Blue and Leaf Green

AVOCADO Use Moss Green color

BLACK Our paste color or Royal Blue, Christmas Red, Orange and Lemon

CHARTREUSE 9 parts Lemon Yellow, 1 part Leaf Green

CORAL Creamy peach and a touch of pink or orange and a touch of pink.

FLESH Add just an extremely small touch of Copper to white icing. Ivory can also be used. Light pink with a small amount of brown.

GRAY Add just a touch of Black to white icing.

HUNTER GREEN Kelly Green and a touch of Black

JADE Leaf green, Royal Blue and a touch of Black

LAVENDER Pink and Violet

MARIGOLD Lemon Yellow and Orange

MAROON Burgundy and Red Red

MAUVE Touch of Burgundy with very little Black.

MISTY GREEN Leaf Green, Royal Blue and a touch of Black

MOSS GREEN Our paste color or Violet and Lemon Yellow

MULBERRY Mix Rose with a touch of Royal Blue.

NAVY BLUE Royal Blue and Black

PERIWINKLE Royal Blue and Violet

PLUM Use violet with a touch of Christmas red.

RASPBERRY Pink and Red Red

RUST Orange, Red Red and Brown

SILVER We do not advise attempting to simulate silver color in icing. Instead, add silver leaves or other silver accessories to the cake.

TEAL Use teal paste color or Lemon Yellow and Sky Blue

TURQUOISE Sky Blue and Lemon Yellow

WARM GOLD Use Golden Yellow with just a touch of brown.

THANK YOU!!! I am laminating this, I am not a color master and quite often get a different shade that I wanted. Thank you both!

Hi Petit-four: do you mean that the first color listed in the color combination is the Base color?

This is great. Thanks so much! BTW, anybody know where to get a color mixing chart for Satin Ice fondant? I saw one at my cake supply store hanging next to the Satin Ice, but they were super busy and I haven't been back yet to ask.

Hi angkimbrell...sorry for the slow response. I'd not been receiving topic notices.

Yes, I think they mean mix up the base color (the main color) to the general intensity you want, and then tint it with a tiny bit of the additional colors. So, for example, for "ANTIQUE GOLD" I'd start with yellow icing, and then add a little green as they direct.

Hope this helps! thumbs_up.gif

Hey there! thanks for the Wilton Colour chart. The only problem is that at this time, that page is unavailable via the link. Don't know if there is an update... I have copied and pasted the list you gave ( what a life saver you are!). Just thought anyone else out there might wanna do the same thing! icon_biggrin.gif
