I need to make navy icing for the outline of a friend's tattoo on a cake. Has anyone else tried this? I have Wilton colors royal, cornflower, delphinium blues and black. I figure you would mix the two in some combo, but do not have alot of extra buttercream or time to keep messing around with it. I'm hoping someone out there can give me a little insight...soon. Thanks!!

I made a navy graduation cake and I mixed Royal Blue and Black. You have to add a little at a time or you will get it too dark though. Good luck!

For navy I use americolors royal blue and a touch of black, just a little though, and let it sit so the color can develop. It will darken as it rests.
Good luck

Royal Blue and Black. Add a little at a time until you get the desired shade.

Americolor makes Navy...just buy it. If not, go with the royal blue with a little black.

I used royal blue, sky blue, and a touch of black (all 3 together) to get the navy colour I've used in both colour flow and BC.
