I need to make cookies with RI in a soft Tiffany Blue. Does anyone know what color or combination of colors I use to do get that shade? Americolor and Wilton can differ a bit, so if you know which to use, it would be most appreciated if you pass on if it was Americolor or Wilton.

Thanks so much for any help you can offer! icon_smile.gif

I would try Anericolor Sky Blue or Electric Blue.They are very close in color and can be made darker.

In my pix I did a Tiffany Box cake using 5 drops of teal with one drop of sky blue. If you need it lighter, mix this with white fondant.

I was actually just researching this yesterday! I found a Tiffany box cake photo on here and the decorator mentioned that she used sky blue with a tiny bit of spring green. I dont know if she used Americolor or Wilton, though.

I would think it was Americolor but Wiltons Sky Blue is very close too.

Yes, I used Americolor. I like the drop action as opposed to Wilton's little tubs. It took some doing but I did come up with the five drops teal to one drop sky blue ratio and I was able to accurately recreate that color over and over. icon_biggrin.gif

Oh I forgot to add, Chefmaster liquid paste did well too with those colors. icon_biggrin.gif
