Hi! I have an order for some cupcakes this weekend, white cake with lime green buttercream icing.
I have Americolor colors. What would I use to get this color... green & ...?

Thanks! Maria

I agree with prterrell but it's more lemon yellow than leaf green. My colorchart says 5 parts lemon yellow to 1 part leaf green. I find it easier to color my fondant/icing lemon yellow and add the leaf green until I get the shade that I want.
