I have slowly been making the switch from Wilton colors to Americolor colors, but have a question about green. What americolor green is closest to Moss or Juniper wilton color?

I'll be watching this for the experience of others. I haven't found an equivalent to moss green. Americolor Avocado is pretty but has more yellow (?? or something). Moss green and teal are the only two Wilton colors that I continue to buy. I don't like juniper, but I haven't found an equivalent to that, either. Adding a tiny bit of blue to Forest Green comes close.

I was going to say "avocado".........here is a cake covered in icing dyed with the avocado green from americolor to give you an idea of the color. You can get a lighter shade obviously by not adding as much, I gave it a good squirt for this shade.

ooh I love the wilton moss green. I have used americolor avacado and added a tiny bit of black to darken it a bit. Its close but not the same.
