I need to make a "Baby Blue" icing - like the satin ribbon. Royal or sky blue doesn't do it. Does anyone know how to get this color?

If you use royal or sky blue, the "blue" after sitting almost has a aqua undertone, not a true blue like you are looking for. I have found if I add just a bit of purple to the frosting that had been tinted with either of the blues it gets rid of that aqua and you will get a true blue, no matter how light or dark the shade is you are looking for.

How about the cornflower blue? When used in small amounts it seems about right. It worked for me, but maybe it's a different baby-blue you're thinking of.

I used 3 drops of Americolor Electric Blue to a huge batch of MFF on my last cake. ( )When by itself, it looked like a soft blue.

Thanks so much - I will try these ideas. I thought you could probably add a color to the blue but had no idea which color - and would have never thought of purple!
