Hello,

This color seems to be a little tricky, it is not really a sky blue, not really a turquoise. I have seen it suggested that we try Americolor Sky Blue with Teal ... but that might be too blue. It almost looks like we need to try some yellow or green.

I am getting ready to order supplies for this cake and want to make sure to get everything needed, as there are no "walk in" stores within a 4+ hour radius that would carry cake supplies.

I have ordered Fondarrific Teal, and it seems to be quite close, but a bit too green.

Thanks for your help!

I've used AmeriColor's turquoise to make a Tiffany blue....is that the color you're looking for? Hope this helps!

Thanks for the responses, and for the link. The color is very pale, a light aqua / mint color, almost seems greenish grey with a hint of aqua. It is muted and not vibrant. The picture I tried posting did not go through, I will try searching for a similar color online and post that. Thanks!

Found it! Here is a link to the color swatch she sent ... look for PMS 324
