If you don't have/can't get ivory yes, the teeny, tinest touch of brown can work. Remember you can always add more color but it is hard to take it awayicon_smile.gif
I suggest you take out about a cup & color that keeping track of how much you use. Then mix that into your full batch you are using.

Yea everytime I add brown, no matter how little, I always end up with tan. I've heard some people add a touch more vanilla and it gives it an off white hue but for me... I'm lazy, I just buy ivory fondant icon_biggrin.gif
