can anyone tell me how to get antique white? I need to make some fondant roses on a cake covered with buttercream and she wants them both antique white. If any one can help I know all you very smart people on CC can do it.

I always use a little bit of Ivory. I always add it a little bit at a time. Don't forget that it will darken as it drys. If you add to much it will turn yellow.

I like ivory too - I did a christening cake for my neice. Lisascakes is right - start with a very tiny bit!

Thank you so much for your help! I was really having a hard time with this one. I used brown and it turned kinda peach color and I could not get antique color at all. I knew you all would know! Thanks again!! I will try to find ivory tomorrow.

I would add a touch of Americolor ivory to it...if it gets too dark, just knead in a little more white fondant.
