Hi everyone. I'll be making a cake for my niece but she wants it to have this color scheme. Can anyone tell me how to obtain these colors in swiss buttercream? I will also be making macarons and meringues.

How To Obtain These Colors?

Thank you!

Your pink is pretty straight forward and should not require mixing.  I use Wilton gel colors (because they are easy to find) and they make one called Pink, which I use a lot.  It would only take a modest amount to achieve the soft pink.  They also make Sky Blue, which would not require mixing.  To achieve the Seafoam, a touch of Leaf Green added to the Sky Blue should give good results.  Just all small amounts of color at a time and add more if needed.

it’s hard to get a soft pink in swiss smbc because of the butter (yellow and soft pink become soft peach) so be advised on that one —

probably need to make some icing w/shortening or buy a can of white icing to make the pink, or airbrush it pink — I thought maybe it was a blush color because that is so popular right now — I should have read the photo better

Thank you. I'll try adding a touch of purple to hopefully counteract a little bit of the yellow. Hope that works.

You were totally right about the peach color! It was impossible for me to make the pink one. Since the colors where only for decorations, I ended up making american buttercream and turned that one into pink. I did cover the cake with the SMBC.
