I have been asked to make cupcakes with navy blue frosting and silver decorations, which i didn't think would be a problem!
But i have just made my buttercream pale and fluffy then added lots of cocco powder to help with the base colour and then added a teaspoon of navy colouring but it has still turned out dark green?!
Please help with any tips or advice it would be much appreciated
I refer to this color chart often.....Wilton has one as well. Hope this helps!
I don't know why the link posted the way it did!! The chart is on sugarcraft.com...
OK, won't let me post site....here is what the chart says to get navy:
1 part Sky Blue and 1 part Violet
Large amount of Royal Blue until deep blue is achieved then add a touce of Black.
Aw thanks that's really helpful. I have also just sent my other half off to get me some Flora White and that's made a lot of difference to the colour, it is blue instead of green lol!
I now have Navy blue buttercream!
