I would think brown. Green and pink does not make purple.

really depends on the shades of the pink and green and also the amount of each that you could get anything from a brown, to a mauve, to a purple!

dk. purple and electric orange makes a beautiful mauve by the way lol

just mix a tiny bit of each together and see what you get, you might be surprised!

red and green are complimentary colors, colors opposite on the color wheel, therefore they will make brown. Pink and light green are tints of red and green and will yeild a tan/brown, it depends on the intensity of the green and pink. the lighter the intensity, the lighter the brown, the darker, the more intense, the darker the brown.

You will only get a perfect purple from red and blue. If i were you i would use green to make leaves, as you can use them later. Then, if you need a purple, add red to the pink you already have and add your blue. As for white, keep it until you have some project to work on.

I wouldn't mix them together. You would get some shade of brown. Green and pink, however, look great against each other. I'd just save the icing for another project, or use them up on a pretty spring cake.
