I've been trying to get the right colors to make baby blue and every attempt I make doesn't work out. Royal blue is too teal, I saw someone said cornflower or sky blue but the cornflower looks more on the gray side so i pulled out my americolor sky blue and that seems to be a pretty good color but I don't know if I will be wasting fondant if I drop some on, I see that normally gel colors are used. Would it be safe?

I once had a cake store owner suggest air brush colors to me because they were out the gel. Did you try using a little royal and a little sky blue added this is what I do.

Take just a tiny piece the size of a quarter and try it.

Not sure if this would help but I have made baby blue by mixing white fondant with both black and blue fondants...small amounts of black and blue from satin ice and once I mixed the white into it I got the baby blue.

If this is your first time trying..make sure you do really small amounts to get your color correctly.

I don't have blue fondant so I think I will try the sky blue americolor on small peice of the white fondant and see how it works out. Thank you all for your replies.
