I am hosting a baby shower with three other people on Saturday. The colors originally were sage and brown and white. However, the person who was getting the plates could not find anything in those colors. She did find plates in a lime green though. I would like to attempt to make it all match, but I have NO idea how to achieve a lime green buttercream. I am pretty new to this stuff, so if it's complicated, I don't think I can do it.

Can anyone help me??

Thanks in advance
Kristi

Americolor electric green is an awesome lime green, but if you don't have quick access to new food colors, you'll need to mix other colors till you get the right look. I think I saw somewhere that adding yellow to green gets more of a lime color. Try with a little bit of fondant or BC and see what happens! icon_smile.gif

Try kelly green with lemon yellow. Also, check out this site: http://www.sugarcraft.com/catalog/coloring/colormixingchart.htm

Good Luck!

I am not familiar with Betty Crocker colors. If you can't find those, use green and a small amount of golden yellow. Try mixing a small amount before you mix a large batch. HTH

If you can't get to, or don't have the color already suggested, try mixing some yellow with green until you get the color you want. I start with the yellow, and slowly add the green until if looks right. Good luck! icon_smile.gif
