Making lime green fondant or icing

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I cannot figure out how to make lime green fondant (or icing for that matter). I have pretty much all the Wilton colours -- do you mix a few colours together to get lime green, or do you have to buy a different brand lime green colour?

Thanks for your help!

I would try a smaller batch and start with yellow and then add green. Maybe start with a pale yellow first.

Remember to start with small amounts of food coloring. You can always add more, but it is difficult to take away.

Lemon Yellow and Leaf Green should get you where you need to go.

I made the lime green wedding cake in my pics by starting with Wilton Lemon Yellow and adding Duff's Electric Green. It's one of my favorite colors!

I used Wilton lemon yellow first and added a very small amount of leaf green until it got to lime green.

I made lime green fondant by starting with yellow then adding Wilton Leaf Green until I got the desired shade. Here is an example:

I agree, that's what I use and it's great! You can see the color on my birthday cake.

I used Duff's electric green for the tennis ball next to my tennis raquette. A little went a long way! AND, it's available at Michaels if you need it sooner rather than later... There's a 40% off coupon this week ;°)

Thanks everyone this is great! I'll try a few options but the Duff's electric green may be a good thing if I don't have to mixicon_smile.gif
