Tiffany blue

I’ve been asked to make a Tiffany Box Cake … Does anyone have advice in terms of what combination of icing/paste colouring would give me the right shade of blue? Thanks

Hi Jagilles

I would say Tiffany blue is egg blue with a a little green added to it. I recently rolled out Renshaw’s Jade green, to me it looked more blue. I think Tiffany blue could possibly be made with the jade and a little blue or blue with a little green. Try mixing different blues and greens in small amounts you may hit lucky. I’m sorry I can’t help more.

I usually use Sugarflair’s Ice Blue when I need a Tiffany blue shade. It is almost the right colour but as MIWL suggests a tiny spot of green gets the exact shade.

Oh yes, I forgot about the ice blue, it has that vibrancy so it may well work. I think turquoise with just a touch of blue?? If you manage to make the colour, would be good to hear how you did it.

If you google this there is a video tutorial. The woman on the vid uses wilton teal and adds a very small amount of grey. I also have feeling one of the fondant companies actually produces a tiffany blue fondant. If i remember who it is i will repost.

Cupcake world has lots of interesting coloured icing. I think the price is £1.50 for 200g of tiffany blue.
I usually ordered the coloured icing from them and they are very prompt in delivering.
