Hi everyone! I'm in need of some help w/ fondant color mixing...it isn't going so well! How do I achieve the color tan, cream or beige with fondant? These are some of the colors for a baby shower cake that I am doing....I tried mixing ivory w/ a touch of brown...but it doesn't look tan, cream or beige! Help!
hmm I am not sure as I have never made that color, but right from the off I am thinking start with yellow then slowly add brown?
I use a colour called 'Caramel / Ivory' by Bennets (UK brand). Depending on the amount you add it will give you cream, beige and tan.
Maybe keep adding brown a little at a time until you get the shade. Remember the colors deepen as they set. This is what I did to achieve the color grey I needed for an elephant gumpaste accent I needed.
Thanks! These are strange colors, I know...when the lady sent me the pics, the colors looked peach to me...but apparently they are cream, beige, and tan! ....I think I finally mixed a color that looks close to it. I wish I had Kelly75's caramel! That sounds great! I think I will try the yellow and brown now and see if that is better. Thanks you guys!!
hey, were you able to achieve the beige color?
