Bride wants flowers that are mint colored but the color swatch she sent me has a blueish tint to it.  I colored some fondant using americolor mint green and sky blue but it comes out as an aqua.  Any ideas?CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

AIf the bride sent you a swatch to match then match it; don't worry about the words she used to describe the colour. People have all different sorts of ideas of what "mint" green is. In the end the right colour is what is important, not the right word. :)

AUmmmmmm. Maybe a hint of the americolor teal? Like a drop at a time in a batch of white fondant? That has more of a green but I can't think of anything.

Maybe combining the teal with sky blue?
