What color are you using to get the baby boy blue color?
I use Americolor - but don't use sky blue because it has too much green in it. I usually use a regular blue or a navy and use a very very small amount until I have the color I need.
A teensy-weensy bit of dark blue. You can add more, but you can't take it away.
I use a little bit of Wilton Royal Blue.
I actually prefer the Sky blue but just a touch as the royal blue tends to look very washed out and muted.
I'll have to try the sky blue, even if I'm making it as sky blue, I can always start with a small amount first to see how it looks, then add more.
Yes..That is what I do...I have tried the royal blue and just didn't like the color I got..The sky blue looked more boyish and cuter.
I don't really limit myself to one specific shade for baby blue. I just use whatever pale blue fits in with the other colors and feel of the particular cake I'm doing. Sometimes I want a cool pale blue and use Wilton Royal blue. Other times I want a warmer pale blue and add the tiniest titch of buttercup yellow to warm it up.
what about corn flower blue ?
