I making a cake and cupcakes like this one for my daughters b-day this weekend. Only I can't figure out how to get this blue. I was thinking Wilton Sky Blue but I am unsure.

All I have the ability to get where I live is Wilton and Duff colors (I prefer Wilton) So if anyone has any suggestions on how to get this color that would be great!

Thank you in advance.

It looks like tiffany blue but has a lot of lighting on it. Wilton cornflower blue and I cant remember who puts it out but its skyblue and it looks just like it. You can check some of the online suppliers for the color and find it. You might be able to find it in Americolor colors.

I think the Wilton sky blue will do it. The cornflower blue looks too grayish to me.

I agree on the Americolor electric blue

That actually looks like the blue I used for my Luau cake last weekend - I used Wilton colors, and did two toothpick smears of Royal Blue, one smear of Teal Blue, and one of Cornflower blue. It ended up being a really pretty blue color...

if the wilton sky blue is the same as the americolor sky blue, that alone should work, you just need a lot of it.

I agree that it looks more teal than that electric blue. It is a lighter tone. Much, much closer to the wilton teal blue. I use that and sky blue but this does not look like sky blue.

I agree, lots of sky blue with/or electric blue.

Why don't you ask Natalie?

She's just as sweet as she is talented.
