Hi MO,

The lime greens you see in my cake photos are from me using the Carolines Sugar Art apple green

Gives the brightest lime green i have found.

If you look at the most recent cake I did, I used Americolor's Electric Green. It's the perfect shade of lime green! Good luck! : )

Yep...Americolor Electric Green. It's perfect! And it's what I used for the green bow on the zebra cake in my photos. icon_wink.gif

If you don't want/have time to order colors you might try the McCormick Neon food colors from the grocery store. I've been using them for my granddaughters cakes and cuppies the last couple years and they make bright fun colors that really pop. Cheap investment with big time results.

if you are using wilton colors.. for lime.. use more lemon yellow.. less leaf green... for hot pink.. use wilton rose pink...then in future . if you want to.. look up americolor neon pink and neon green.. i have other neon colors from this brand also.. i am telling you this.. because you say .. you hope to use what you have.. and this is what most of us want to do.. righ? use these colors (wilton) until you achieve what you are looking for..
