mwatson-

Welcome! I made a lime green shade the other day for a Witch cake using Wilton's Leaf Green and Lemon Yellow.

If you have the opportunity to either order or go to a cake supply store, Americolor sells an Electric Green color.

Yellow & green ~ more yellow than green ~ perhaps a 3 to 1 ratio.

I find it best to start with a bright yellow icing, and then mix in a little green icing. You could add a drop or 2 of the green color into your yellow icing, but be careful to not add too much.
This all depends on how much icing you are trying to tint. Working with smaller amounts to begin with will prevent ruining a big batch of icing.
