Icing Color Chart

When mixing color for your icing always mix a small amount of end color first to experiment. Start with white icing, add your base color then add very small amounts of secondary color. To keep the color consistent on the cake, mix enough of any one icing color for the entire cake. It is difficult to match the same shade of color again.
