How do you achieve the color sage green ? I have checked all the color charts with no luck. Also will storing unopened boxes of cake mix in the freezer destroy the the quality of the cake ? I plan to bring the unopened mix to room temp before using and I am wondering if it will affect the structure or the texture of the cake after it is baked icon_rolleyes.gif

I've used small quantities of the Wilton "juniper" for sage green. I had a perfect match with a bridesmaid's dress with little trouble - the key is to use very little. Colors tend to darken overnight -- so pipe a few rosettes next to your sample, perhaps.

If needed, "warm" it with a dab of buttercup yellow, or "cool" it wth the tiniest amount of blue. I hope this helps with part of your question!

I use moss green wit a little bit of golden yellow.. But be careful there are lots of shades in sage green..
