Hi I live in Britain and hewere it is very easy to get hold of green food colouring which comes in liquid form this means no guess work for how much of each colour you need. Hope this helps

Start with a few drops of Egg Yellow Gel Paste food color and add one drop Blue Gel Paste food color at a time. Mix well and add more blue or more yellow to get your desired shade of frosting for the dragon.
