hi all, needed some info on how to get navy blue icing, do i need chocolate frosting first then add the blue? I appreciate your help! I will be making a U.S. Navy type cake.

Wilton makes a dark navy. Use that.

I use Americolor and I mix royal purple and royal blue to get navy.

and I wouldn't start with chocolate - it would probably turn out muddy looking.

I asked the lady at the Wilton store this same question a while back. She said to use regular buttercream, tint it Royal Blue, then add a little touch of black. It worked!

Americolor makes a navy blue soft gel color.

Sorry, that's what I did for a midnight sky sort of thing.

I haven't tried it with the Wilton colors, just Americolor.

CK also makes a navy blue color, however, I had to add a little black to it to get a true navy blue for my Dallas Cowboys cake.

Sky blue + violet makes periwinkle (pastel) and navy blue.
