what is best to use to make bright green frosting/buttercream as i want to make a bright grass colour but can only seem to make a light pastel colour using green food colouring. And it doesnt seem to turn a bright shade of green. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks :smile:

a bit expensive, and I have to order them rather than buy them easily off-the-shelf, but they provide several different gradations of green, are easy to mix, and involve less guesswork than the "put two drops of yellow, and try three drops of green" method with common liquid food coloring.

On ebay you can get sets of gel colors fairly cheap. They are pretty expensive in the stores. =( I just had to buy 4 of them in a local store because the delivery would take too long..
