I was wondering which color you use to get Ivory buttercream? Do you use the Ivory by Americolor? It looks very peachy colored from the picture of the color? does it come out lighter?
Thanks for your help!

Usually my vanilla extract makes my bc a little ivory in color anyway. If I need to add ivory coloring, I add just a small touch of the Wilton Ivory color. Americolor would probably be the same way...I just haven't tried it.

Use real butter and vanilla lol... but seriously, I just put the TEENY WEENY TINIEST MICROSCOPIC touch of brown.

I use clear vanilla for regular icing, but I use the cheap brown stuff when I want to make ivory.

I have the Americolor Ivory and it really does come out ivory. Just make sure that you add small amounts at a time.
