Okay, I'm in a pickle, I need gold (or that dark yellow color) but all I have is lemon yellow, what would I mix that with to make that dark yellow?

What type of colorings are you using? Both Wilton and Americolor have a chart to reference in making other colors.

My yellow is americolor. I know I'd seen the chart here once, but can't find it here or on the web. THANKS

Thanks Michelle!! I remember honeydukes (queen of links) had like a wheel, I think. I must have saved it on my other computer. Thanks a MIL!

Americolor also carries a gold color. It's more butterscotchy than anything. Whenever I wanted a golden yellow, I always added some pink or orange to the yellow icing. It works pretty good!

Gemini, I thought of orange, wasn't sure, but never thought about pink. THANKS

Thanks Dandelion, I've added that to my favs, so I will have quick access from either 'puter.
Shine on!
