I need to make turquoise frosting, and got some Teal gel from Americolor at the advice of someone. It arrived today, and from the sticker on the outside, it appears to be like a jade green. Anyone know if that's the color I should be going with, or should I for something different?
Just use a small amount. I think the teal is a bit more on the green side--which turquiose is so a little might work.. You could also think about adding a touch of sky blue. Experiment...it's the best way. I've made turquoise before and it seems like I mixed more than one color to get what I needed. But a little goes a long way with the blue colors!
I had to make turquoise this past week for my son's wedding cake. It was supposed to be a more blue shade of turquoise. I started with the teal and added sky blue. For the color I needed, I probably should have started with the blue and added the teal, but it came out ok.
i have an AmeriColor turquoise gel color...not sure if you have a cake supply in your area though :/ good luck
I agree that teal + sky blue = turquoise. I would use the sky blue first and then add a little bit of teal at a time because it is darker.
I did this using teal and royal blue. They were the only colors I had available and it worked. Not sure if they are both Americolor though.
Arrgh! I'm plum outta blue. I made a trip to my cake store to get the teal since I have to make 4 batches and wanted a more uniform color than mixing could give me, but I can go find some Wilton color at Michael's.
Or sky blue with a touch of yellow
