I need to make Ivory cream cheese icing for a wedding cake. I will use regular Vanilla extract in recipe. My question is would Cream cheese icing naturaly be consider as "Ivory color", or should I add some Ivory color to the icing to make it ivory??

I have a graduation cake in my photos that is cream cheese icing. It is a little off white, but not really ivory. Take a look and see...mine is an Italian Cream Cheese so it has nuts and coconut in it as well.

I do a cream cheese, butter and PS with regular vanilla. It is ivory next to a white buttercream. However, perception is everything. and you might want to add a little color

I agree - I certainly wouldn't call it white, but probably not ivory either - more off-white. I'd add some color if you are looking for a real ivory.
