I am making a cake for the Special Forces unit here on post and I need to cover a beret with forest green fondant. The problem is, I don't know how to make the forest green color. I haven't been to hobby lobby to see if they have a forest green color gel but I am going soon. IF they don't what colors can I use to get the desired effect? This is one cake I would like to make as close to the original as possible. For the record the only green I have seen around here is leaf. Thank you!

I usually mix my greens, I think the wilton moss green or juniper green might work. They don't carry those at my Micheals but the Party City here carries them, hth

Cake Craft makes a forest green you can order:

Or, you can try mixing with these charts:

(CC blocks the above address, so simply take out the space between "sugar" and Craft" It is an intensive chart with good advice.
