How to Make Tiffany Blue Icing
The first time I made Tiffany blue cookies, I wasn’t concerned in the least. Until it was time to mix icing. It was then I realized, I had no idea what color Tiffany blue actually was. An Internet search only complicated the issue. Google it. You’ll see what I mean.
After years of struggling, I decided that the world needed a swatch. A common color reference for comparison. Like a box. Except picking up a Tiffany box isn’t really practical for everyone. So, I came up with another idea. Paint chips.
I picked up swatches at almost every home improvement store and compared the colors until I found a perfect match. The winner, Benjamin Moore’s scuba green.
Then I mixed. Perfect Tiffany blue every time, without the guess work.
Here the verdict. The quickest easiest route to Tiffany blue icing is turquoise Americolor gel. The key is taking it easy. Using the paint chip as a guide, add color, little by little until you’ve reached the desired shade.
If you don’t have turquoise on hand, you can always use equal parts royal blue and leaf green.
As someone who’s come up with about ten different ways to create Tiffany Blue icing, I’ll be the first to say color mixing isn’t an exact science. There is more than one way to achieve the same result. So, if you’ve got another combination that works, don’t change things on my account.
Meanwhile, go grab a few swatches to keep on-hand and take the guess work out of Tiffany blue.

Thank you SO much for posting this!! I recently googled your last post on how to make tiffany blue icing – I am new to this cookie thing and have a project coming up and need the perfect Tiffany blue shade. Hooray!
Beautiful color. Please explain how you made the lovely bow on the cookie?

Would love to see how you make that sweet bow….pretty please?
This is what I call the “modified Ali-Bee bow”. I say modified because I can’t execute it nearly as well as she does, lol! You can check out her video here: http://youtu.be/LAAxJ9O6hgQ
OMGosh.. I thought the same thing! I’m horrible at bows! – that video was perfect – thanks Sweet Sugar Belle!!! 🙂
I think you should send the people at tiffany’s a complimentary dozen.
You never know what may come of it.
Paint chips – BRILLIANT!
Wish I’ve seen this post earlier! I was trying to make this color for my friend’s birthday cupcakes. Thanks for posting it!

I love it when you spell out making colors for us!!
Wow !! Super creative !! Love it !! How to do ??
Thank you, thank you, thank you! We “started over” in life and I went back to college five years ago to secure a stable job and now am a grandma! I had hundreds of cookie cutters 20 years ago (before they were cool) and dreamed I would some day be able to enjoy using them. The time really never came about . . . I am now graduated from college and saw your story on Texas Country Reporter tonight. I feel like you have a restored my original dream by being so generous in sharing your techniques and recipes! I am sure I would rather order cookies from you, but you have renewed my hopes by your kindness to us all. I am a baker . . . YOU are truly an artist! Thank you so much again. I can hardly wait to make my dreams come true with my grand daughters. Appreciatively, Dinah
Can you tell me why my icing looks pitted after a day? I’m just learning and I absolutely love your cookies!

Those Tiffany blue cookies with the bows are absolutely beautiful. How in the world did you make something so perfect? Such talent!
You made my life a lot easier today. Making Tiffany colored cookie. Your turquoise tip was spot on. Thanks!!
I love the Tiffany Blue. I have a cake in October that I am making and I want to than you for your research. I would however love to know if you used a stencil on those cookies? I would love to make some of those as well as a surprise. I do not have a kopykake projector so I would have to do freehand….
I learned how to decorate cookies because of you. Thank you so much. I’m glad I found your blog. I’m planning to make these Tiffany cookies for my friend’s daughter’s birthday. What kind of icing did you use? Did you just use 20 second icing and no piping for white and Tiffany color or did you still use piping and flooding for both? I’m having a difficult time making my edges between two different color icing as clean as yours. Thank you so much.
Those cookies are adorable!! My grand-daughter sent me your link from Pinterest. I do a lot of custom embroidery & wanted to know what color she was going to use for the Nursery — expecting in June! Woo-Hoo! You’re a life-saver, with that paint swatch color match!! I use paint swatches all the time — even have an old ” paint deck”, so folks can show me what color/shade they want. I know all too well how some people can read colors a little “off” — aqua colors often read more blue or green in tone. Thank you, thank you for doing the homework for us!!
Hello Sweet Sugarbelle,
Can I use the same method on fondant? I have to do a Tiffany’s gift box cake for Saturday. Please let me know and thank you so much, this was a HUGE help!
