Ack...I have soccer cupcakes I need to make today, and I never thought to play around with the icing before hand. I need to make the darker green icing, like grass....but I can't get my icing dark enough.

Anything I can do to make it darker? I am using wilton colours, I have leaf green, lemon yellow, golden yellow, royal blue, sky blue, brown, and red.

Please help! I don't have enough time to go buy any other colours right now!

add black to the green you have it will turn a forset green.

Adding black does work well. If you don't have any though, only have the colors you listed, I would just keep adding more. I have done that with the Wilton leaf green before. It takes quite a lot, but you can get it there. And remember it will get a little darker as it dries too.

the brown you have might work instead of the black. I would try it!
