I'm making a golf cake, due today and I can't get the right color green--I used leaf green, then finally added some juniper green to it. What else can I do? I don't have Kelly green color.
What would happen if I put some of that "drip" food color in? Would it help the color?
For the greens on my golf cake I used Americolors "Forest" and Leaf".
Yes,I think you could add some "drip" food color (don't put too much!)I have done it and I don't think it changed my icing consistency.That should help the color.If your using it for something that needs to "stand up" I wouldn't risk using "drip" food coloring. Good Luck!
for all my greens, i have always added green until it's the bright green i need then tone down a notch with a tiny, tiny bit of black. it takes a little of the brightness away and makes it seem more like grass to me.
For grass I always use moss green but if your BC is now to bright you can tone it down with a tiny, tiny bit of brown, good luck!
I did drip green for mine, I just add a little more powdered sugar to stiffen it back up. Good Luck!
