Thanks

I would actually love to know the answer to this too! I have had trouble searching CC and the net for the answer... I plan on using regular green and adding small amounts of black until I achieve the best color... I think Wilton actually makes a paste color that is "forest" green but the patch on the bottle doesn't really match Green Bay green so hopefully my plan will work out... Good luck to you!

Okay so I asked a fellow CC member how they did it and they used Wilton leaf green, Americolor black, and Americolor navy to achieve Green Bay green... Hope that helps!

icon_biggrin.gif I live near GreenBay, Wisconsin and have had to make this color before. Since the Packers are off to the
Superbowl, I thought I'd better help out. Start with leaf green or similar and keep adding a little moss green or forest green until it gets deep enough. A tiny tiny tiny amount of black may also help. Go Pack! thumbs_up.gif

Haha MissJezabelle I agree! Wish I didn't have to make the cake but can't help who made it to the Super Bowl! LoL...

Joycesdaughter111, Thanks for the input! I am starting tomorrow and I have all those colors and will be trying that out!

Thank you from me, too!!! I just got a superbowl order.... my same old same old superbowl cake (the two helmet heads with faces of aggression facing each other) - but this year I need the GB green as well as Steelers colors.

icon_smile.gif You are welcome everyone! You don't neccessarily have to buy the exact colors I listed. I've learned that several different greens can work when making Green Bay Packer green as long as ONE of the greens is mossy. Practice on a small amount of icing in a small bowl till you get it right. And if you do need to add the black, add it in teeny tiny pinhead small amounts. Happy caking.

Go Packers! icon_biggrin.gif

LOl what a funny topic! I have a husband that is a cheese head and I just did a foot ball palyer for his bday. I used a mix of juniper green, leaf green and a touch of black to get my color, cake is in my pics.

what about the yellow? It doesn't seem like a straight on yellow. I have to make a helmet. So more yellow than green, I guess.

Thanks!

I just made my helmet and for the yellow I used Wilton golden yellow with a little bit of Wilton copper... turned out pretty good to me...

The way to get the green for Green Bay Packers, is you take a color called golden yellow and mix it into half of your white buttercream. Then take the other half, add a lot of black color and mix well. Use these two separate colors and when everyone asks you what is wrong with your colors on the cake, explain to them that you made the cake in honor of the better team. Hehe, just kidding.....(I couldn't let that pass!)....

I used the premade green Wilton fondant and added a bit of black (Satin Ice) and ended up with a shade that's very close. I haven't made up the yellow yet, but according to one website I looked at, they call it "taxicab" yellow so I bought Americolor Egg Yellow that looks like it should be pretty close.

Anyone with ideas how to make the G for the logo? The hubby gave me an idea, but it's a bit more labor intensive than I was hoping for.

VaBelle... I made a copy of the logo on my computer and printed it out and then used my Exacto knife to cut out the "G" and then traced it directly on my fondant... Worked good for me...

Thanks Emily! I figured that's how most people did it.
