I am working on a wedding cake, and I'm afraid I'm about to give up. They requested ivory, so I bought ivory coloring to tint the fondant. At first I could really tell a difference, but now I'm looking at the cake (of course, all 3 tiers are already covered!) and it looks white to me!! What do I do? (I may be freaking out because I just talked to the coordinator, who said "It's not white, right?)

Hold up a piece of fresh computer paper next to it (or a roll of TP or paper towels)--if they don't match, then it's ivory.

Unless they gave you a color sample to match, then it's whatever you say it is.

Ivory tends to do that. The more you look at it the less you see the color. I bet it is just fine. As someone said, hold up something you *know* is white and you will see the difference.
