Hi
So I went to my local store hoping that wilton would have the emerald green colour I wanted (there is only wilton gel colors at our store) and they have all sorts of greens - just not a green I wanted!

So I have bought leaf green and hop with a touch of wilton gel blue I can make it go emerald.

Strangely enough wilton had 'green' edible glitter which was just the colour I was after - but no 'green' gel colourings.

Any tips to make the colour I need? I've attached a pic of the eedible green glitter colour I'd like to try and match.

I don't know if this will help b/c I have not used the green glitter. However.......

I did mix Wilton green with a glittery squeeze gel into my buttercream icing once.

I also mixed the green with a bit of blue and the glittery green stuff into my icing and used it on the water in this cake.

I'm not sure if this will help but you could try. Maybe just try putting in a heavier amount of green and play with it until you get the color you need.
