I guess I could be confusing people with my color description. I am looking for a blushy beige color very light. I don't know how to describe it sorry icon_redface.gif Hoping someone has some ideas.

Have you tried a copper or skin tone color with a little yellow?

i would think ivory with copper should nail it!

If you are making Swiss Merengue Buttercream (SMBC), there is one in a Martha Stewart Living Magazine (around Thanksgiving) that uses BROWN sugar when you warm the egg whites. It may be on the MS web site. It's fairly simple, delicious and it comes out a nice pale ivory color depending on whether you use light or dark brown sugar. I'll see if I can find pictures with something I've used it on.


OK - editing 'cause I found one. I used it on the little mini-muffins in the bottom-left corner.
