So I've been trying to figure out the best way to get a sage colour. I only have access to wilton colours...I'm pretty sure they don't actually have a sage but is there one of the green that done lightly will be sage or a combination that will produce sage. I checked the Wilton colour chart and they don't have sage on there.

Actually Wilton has a color called Juniper green that makes a really nice Sage green.Americolor has a color called Avocado.

I've never made sage for a cake but I used to dye wedding shoes. The easiest way to dull green is to add red. I would do it one drop at a time. I hope this works for cake too. But color is color so it should!

Juniper green with a touch of sky blue to brighten it slightly. Juniper by itself is more army green.

wilton has a color called moss green. it is a sage color. That is the color I used in my butterfly cookies. You can obviously add less to make it a little lighter too.

Ironically, I'm sitting here with green stained fingers because the wedding cake I'm working on is "Sage green with pizzazz!" (don't ask!). I'm using Juniper and Moss green combined and dropping a couple of tablespoons of chocolate icing in there to darken it a bit.

It going to be a 5 tier cake with the tiers choc-sage-choc-sage-choc. Can't wait to see how it turns out! thumbs_up.gif
