Hi just wondering if anyone knows the best way to make sage green. I have a cake that I have to cover in sage green fondant. Didn't know if there were any "tricks" or suggestions to getting this color? Thanks!

Add just a touch of black to your green, not too much or you will get gray.

I like to add a tiny bit of brown...start small, it's easier to add more than try to correct too much.

Americolor "Avocado" is a gorgeous sage color. It's really more sage than avocado. I use it all the time.

If you have Wilton colors... there is a color called Juniper, I believe. If you add a little more it will be a darker sage or add a little moss color as well. If you have Americolor, the avacado color works pretty well. I used the Juniper for the Easter cake and the frog cookies in my photos. HTH!
