How do I get the color of a Powder baby blue for my fondant? I tried just adding a tiny touch of navy, but it is just not that POWDER BLUE I am looking for...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks much~~~

a touch of sky blue should do the trick!

Hopefully KHalstead's suggestion will help you fix what you have, but if you are starting again, I used Wilton Delphinium Blue to get the baby blue on this cake...

Thank you both, Tina & ZoesMum, for your suggestions. I did add a touch of the Sky Blue, to what I had as you suggested Tina & thought, okay, this is close. icon_rolleyes.gif I am actually trying to duplicate a baby's hat from a picture I was given by the baby's mom. I think I will go out tomorrow & get the Delphinium Blue by Wilton & see if that isn't closer to what I am looking for. Sure hope Michael's has it...I had never seen that color. By your picture of your cake, ZoesMum, I believe that will really work. Great cake you did! Tina, you ALWAYS seem to have answers to help everyone. I know you sure have helped me in the past & it is appreciated so much. icon_biggrin.gif Thank you, both again.

Thanks for the compliment Kathie, and good luck! I think(??) I did buy that colour at my local Michaels, so I hope yours has it!

You likely cannot achieve a baby blue with a navy as the base color. Navy blue falls toward the red spectrum and baby blue towards the yellow. You could try adding a touch of yellow to your navy just to see...but my guess is that you'd get a muddy light blue thumbsdown.gif I agree that your best bet is to go buy a brighter blue to use. Good luck. icon_smile.gif
