I always buy mine ready coloured (go through loads of it during wedding season!), but Americolor have an ivory gel colouring in their range.

Wilton also carries an Ivory. I just add a "touch" of brown. That works for me. thumbs_up.gif

I start with a tiny little "smear" wouldn't even call it a drop. icon_lol.gif I'm always afraid I'll get it too dark. I certainly doesn't take very much.
