Does anyone have a suggestion on how to make lime green frosting? I've never made this color and would love advice on it. Thanks

I've always made it by first adding green then some yellow until it comes out to the right shade.

I use Americolor electric green soft gel paste for lime green. Here's a link to their website...

The ratio should be about 5 parts yellow to 1 part green. The easiest way would be with Americolor Electric Green if you have access to that.

Hey curlycakes
I use Wilton colors and I would suggest 4parts lemon yellow and 1 part leaf green.
Goodluck,

If you use the yellow and green mix, make sure to use leaf green -not juniper, moss, holly, etc. And the yellow should be a lemon yellow, not a golden yellow.

Americolor electric green all the way. Luck`s neon green is a close second

FYI, Betty Crocker makes neon food coloring gel! It helped me out in a pinch. It was available at my local Walmart (open 24 hours), instead of me trekking all the way out to Hobby Lobby (closed on Sundays!!!) or Michaels during store hours.
