When mixing color, always mix a small amount of color to experiment. Start with base color and then add very small amounts of secondary color. Be sure to mix enough color for the cakes to be decorated as it is difficult to match an exact color.
Icing Colors are highly concentrated, which gives frosting rich coloring without disturbing consistency. When mixing colors, make sure to use a toothpick to add just a little bit at a time to achieve the exact shade of color you’re after.
