How do I

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I've been asked to make a North Carolina Tar Heels cake and I can not seem to make the color? I've looked up how to make it from various colors and I've also tried to start out with different shades of blue and work up to it but no luck. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks in advance icon_smile.gif

Do you think this will work with fondant as well?

I have done 2 of the UNC cakes. It has been a while but I think I used Wilton's sky blue. Be sure to test the color with a small amount of buttercream or fondant. As I said it has been a while.

 

This is the 2nd UNC Ram cake I made. I tried to get more detail in this one. TFL!

That looks great! To me the color looks a little darker blue. I think I may end up just going with the sky blue. Thank you!

Just wondering, is there a copyright issue for this too? Hopefully not!!!

That's a great question. I wouldn't think so but I'm really not sure.

I would think so. Either way you are adding to white.

I would use Americolor Navy.   That's what I use to get my baby blue color....this looks like a darker version of a baby blue.

Navy is a good idea! I usually use Royal blue with a dab of purple, for my SC blue. Sky blue is MUCH too yellow.

Purple. I never would have tried that even after researching colors online. Thanks Annabakescakes icon_smile.gif
