I am making a Fondant wedding cake and I can't match the fondant to the dress, if you have any suggestions they will be greatly appreciated.

the dress is a ivory/ champagne color. I tried brown and ivory food coloring and it has a red tones to it. I need something more beige.

Thanks in advance.

You can try adding a little green or blue to brown out the reddish tones.

The opposite of red is green, so green should counteract the red undertones. The color of the dress is beautiful!! I think Americolor sells a champagne, but I don't know what kind of tones it contains.

Using brown vanilla (as opposed to clear) makes a pretty ivory color...
