A girl has requested that I do a cake with Pink and Lime Green. I never can get my colors right. They are never the color that I want them to be. Can anyone tell me how to get Lime Green. I will be adding it to MMF. Thanks!! icon_smile.gif

Here's a copy of the color chart I found on here. I've done lime green by just using the lemon yellow then adding leaf green. I only have access to Wilton colors right now, and it worked great. I do however plan on getting Americolor.

I second leaf green + lemon yellow. Get a good medium green first and add yellow a LITTLE BIT at a time. It doens't take much to go too far to the yellow.

What I do is find a cake that I like the color on and mix until I get that color. I like to have a "refererence point".

Americolor makes an electric green that is pretty close

I have found the green in the "strawberry shortcake" colors works pretty well. I don't have a clue what Wilton calls it though.....cuz it isn't green. icon_smile.gif
