I have a bride who wants a cake in the "champagne", or taupe color that you see so often these days. It's a beautiful color, but I don't know what colors to use, either in fondant or buttercream. Preferably fondant, though.

Thanks for any input

What a great color chart. Probably one of the better ones I've seen. So glad I checked CC before shutting the computer off for the day, thanks!

Use ivory with a hint of pink. Then put super- pearl all over it. It will look like champaign colored satin. I love it.

When I make champagne colored fondant I make a ivory colored fondant first (a darker ivory, like a light beige but not tan) and then add just a touch of avacado green to it. It will turn into a color I like to call ABC gum (or looks like the color of juicy fruit gum) then I always luster with a really light gold or ivory colored luster dust. (they also have champagne colored luster dust now.)
