I made a batch of Sugarshack's Buttercream in a light orange color.

When I do this, I add the color to the liquid so it's nice and even. However, then I have an giant batch of all one color.

Is there a chart or anything that will tell me what I new color I could make?

Unless you need a giant batch of one color, you are really limiting yourself by adding the coloring in this way.

With a light orange tint you could darken to a darker orange, make a yellowy orange, make a reddish orange (if you add enough red, you might be able to get rid of the orangish tinge), and you can make brown and black.

You could add yellow, red or pink to it.

I freeze all of my colored bc "scraps", then mix em together with cocoa powder, milk or water to make chocolate. Yum!
