Can someone tell me what Wilton colors to use to get a nice, pretty spring green or mint green shade of buttercream? I don't want that neon green that I seem to get when I use Wilton's leaf green by it's self. I really only have access to Wilton colors, since this is a last minute cake for this coming Saturday. I have the Wilton 8 pc color set, and would like to use what I have. Is that possible?
Wilton's Kelly Green should get you what you want. It makes beautiful grass.
If you have the primary colors, you can make your own. Yellow + Blue makes Green.
You can gradually add SMALL amounts of wilton brown to tone down the "neon" of the green.
I always add a little lemon yellow for lighter or forrest and moss green to darken to my leaf green. I don't like the result of leaf green only either.
yea try a little dab of brown and then a little bit of yellow.
