I use butter in my butter cream, and the crusting cream cheese is pretty much the same color...... I used them side by side for a wedding cake, and no one could tell the difference.....

I use real vanilla when I want an ivory buttercream. I think it tastes better and it gives just enough color. I have ivory gel color, but the vanilla is usually enough.

I did a small cake yesterday. Crumb coated with regular white bc, then iced in cream cheese icing. The cream cheese icing was more yellow, or off-white, than the regular icing, but if I wanted it to be ivory, I'd probably use the cheap brown vanilla instead of the clear vanilla. That's what I do with my regular icing that's ivory and it works fine.

Thank you, that what I will do, use the regular vanilla, and maybe add ivory color if needed.... . I just hope that the cream cheese icing recipe will crust the same as BC, I never work with the cream cheese icing before.

I think there is a crusting cream cheese icing recipe on here. The proportion of fat (butter, cream cheese, shortening) to powdered sugar is what determines if it will crust or not. Mine always does ...
