There are many times when there is no exact shade of food colouring that matches the colour we want. Very often one has to blend a shade.
Take a look at a colour wheel and see what you need to blend to get this shade.
It's also a good idea to tell a client that is IS food that you work with and you can't guarantee an exact match on the colours.
i would say a cornflower blue (wilton) with a bit of black or forest green mixed in. It is quite muddy. (also keep in mind that the color may have been adjusted via photo editing software.)
Thank you ladies, I have just looked at a colour wheel (big thank you for that ). I tried mixing royal blue and a bit of grape and im quite happy with the result.
If you click on the link to that cake .... from Pintrest - it takes you to a Cakes Decor page.... where it TELLS you the colour !!
Yes .... EUCALYPTUS !! which is a Sugarflair colour
Sometimes you need to engage your brain and not just your eyes .... (this ia said tongue in cheek .... but with a good dose of truth attached!)
People give you information in the descriptions of their cakes but all too often people can't be bothered reading it
ALol, if you don't have the eucalyptus color, I would've gone with sky blue mixed with black or maybe forest green. When I mix royal and purple, I get a richer blue, like Cinderella's blue dress.
Edited to add: when did they change it to blue, anyway? Wasn't it white or silvery in the cartoon?
I have the eucalyptus color and it looks nothing like that.
It depends on how much you put in - perhaps you have a different brand?
Thank you Cazza1. I have chosen to ignore the earlier nastiness from the last person. I only asked.
I did read the description that the colour was Eucalyptus but I agree with you. I too have this colour and it looks nothing like the colour in the picture. The picture looks more like a shade of blue and Eucalyptus is green, although I have been itching to try that shade as well and never had the chance yet. But thank you for your help. Sorry i'm a little late with my reply.
I'd call that duck egg blue.
It looks like Wilton's Cornflower Blue.
