Can anyone offer any input on making a nice lime green?I have leaf green and I have yellow but I'm not sure about what ratio to use.Just thought I'd get some advice before messing up some precious icing.I hate having to throw out any.Thanks! icon_smile.gif

What i do is color a small amount of icing a darker shade then i'm looking for then add to a larger amount. That way if you screw it up there is only a 1/4 cup or so of icing that needs to be trashed. But for the lime green i would use the yellow and leaf green, more green the yellow.

leaf green and a bit of yellow will give you a nice lime green!! I also bought the electric green from Americolor and it is a great lime green.
