Need to make cupcakes for a volleyball fundraiser being held on Saturday. The school colors are the same green and gold (yellow) as the Green Bay Packers NFL team.

Any of you have a color mixing guide that will get me the right shades of green and yellow?

Thanks Rocketgirl899...This is a great list. I think I need hunter green and possibly warm gold.

It's for a fundraiser, so I'm sure the kids will be forgiving if it's not perfect!

post #4 of 4's the result. I mixed a lot of lemon yellow with a little orange. I used Kelly Green for the striping.
