Does anyone know what specific Wilton colors I should mix to get a lime green(almost neon) BC? And yes, I tried ordering this specific color of airbrush coloring but needless to say, it didn't happen after dealing with a very unprofessional company. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I used Electric Green gel by AMERICOLOR for my "Number 2 Train Cake" border...

NB - note the edit above, I wrote Wilton by mistake before - sorry!

If you only have Wilton, use one part green to 2-3 parts yellow, but you may need to experiement a bit!

I have done a pretty bright green with lemon yellow and a hint of green. I don't know if i would call it neon but u could give it a try.

Are you wanting to know Wilton colors because that's what you have? If not - I would go with Americolor - they have an electric green and a few others that make nice lime greens, depending on the specific shade you want. Electric may be what you are looking for.

I used Americolor Electric green for the green/purple sweet 16 cake in my photos icon_smile.gif

Yes, I only have Wilton colors to use. Our local cake decorating store, Hobby Lobby, only carries Wilton and I do not have time to order anything else on line. Thank you all so much for your help. I'm going to attempt it with leaf green and lemon yellow : )

Do you know in the regular cake mix/baking isle in the grocery store where you would buy the "Old Fashioned" liquid drops of food coloring...usually comes in a lil box with Red, Yellow, Blue, Green colors...

My groc store has a package that sells four neon colors in a box.
They are VERY bright.
Bought them once before I discovered Americolor.
Can't remember if Lime Green was one of the colors though...anyhow, might be another option for you.

Americolor rocks though!!!

Start with yellow and add a touch of leaf green. That's what I did for the green on this cake:

I've also had to use store-bought lime green neon food coloring in a pinch..worked well. I will soon be investing in some Americolor electric colors...

I think the brand is Club House. I like their neon colors!
