I am making cupcakes for a children's Christmas party. I am putting them on the cupcake tree stand and wanted it to look like a tree. I read that you need Kelly green and a touch of black to make hunter green icing. I only have leaf green and juniper green. How can I make hunter green? Any suggestions?

Leaf green is very close to kelly so just use the same formula.

kelly has a bit of blue in it. Juniper makes a nice tree color and so does straight leaf green.
Don't take those instructions so litteralicon_smile.gif Just use what you have and it will be very nice I'm sure. If we all **HAD** to have what was suggested we all would be broke and never 'invent' anything newicon_smile.gif

I'd just use the Juniper alone.

If you add a little blue color and a tiny bit of black to your leaf green, you will get hunter green.
