Hi all,

A client has requested a cake in dark blue and lime colours. Any suggestions on getting the right shades? I'm fairly confident about the lime but not 100% on the best way to get the dark blue. I'm guessing a mixture of royal blue and black and a lot of kneading! Unfortunately I don't have access to spray colourings so I can't go down that road icon_surprised.gif(

Can you buy Satin Ice Blue? I find it much easier to knead navy blue into that. For lime, I just add lime coloring to white.

I agree with purchasing blue Satin Ice fondant, it will be much easier to add color to fondant that is already blue. Here's another topic on CC about get a darker royal blue fondant. Hope it helps! http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-626130-.html&sid=17b0679aec919e4f66e20d313326b0da

You can make your own rolled fondant and color the liquid mix before adding PS. I find it so easy and the color always comes out regular and well distributed!
