First off, let me say I love this site. You all have given me inspiration and ideas for several months now.

I have a request to make a Monster Energy drink themed cake. Does anyone have any idea how I would go about getting the right color of neon green colored fondant? Should I mix yellow and green? I am drawing a blank on how to get that color. And I have no time to purchase some that is already that color.

Thanks all!!

Do you have access to a store that sells Americolor brand gels? I know Hobby Lobby sells them. They have an Electric Green that might be a good starting point.

If not, then I would try mixing yellow and green, but add in very small amount and color only a little sample of your fondant first as an experiment.

Michaels' have Duff's 'brand' of coloring and has the electric colors.

Witlon's leaf green is a pretty bright color, so a little yellow to it would make it more neon.

Take a small bit of fondant and play around with the colors. With smaller amounts you can usually add them in to a large amount later with out changing the color too much. But that way you can get an idea of which combinations give you the better color.
