I have no clue, but it almost looks like a just little bit of leaf green with a little juniper green added.

But...like I said I have no clue. That's a very cute design are you just going to do a sheet cake with that on top?

Hope somebody can help you find the right color.

I would try Americolor Mint Green - it's lighter than leaf green.

I know I have seen this EXACT design in the gallery. As a matter of fact, I think I saw it in Sugarshacks gallery. You can probably PM most of the people who have made it and they would know exactly.

Hey! Wilton has a colour called Creamy Peach which is quite beautiful. Just use more or less to achieve the depth. A heavy amount can look almost
Coral.

I do think it is the same color, using 3 shades or tones - I wouldn't be looking for 3 different colors. To me it is more blue than yellow...I'd try a Holly/Ivy color more than a spring green.

well....that almost looks like a VERY light olive green to me. almost as if olive green came in pastel. Olive green is made by mixing yellow with a SMALL amount of purple. I also like the idea of trying americolor mint green, but it is a tad brighter than that shade so add carefully.
