Oddly enough, in all the time I've been doing cakes I've never done ivory fondant! I make my own MMF and I know there is ivory color out there I could buy, but I'm trying to avoid a special trip out if I can. I have brown...can I get away with adding a teensy bit of that to get ivory? TIA!

Brown and yellow will give you a nice ivory

Yes you can but be careful if you are using AmeriColor because it's very intense and you may end up with tan instead of ivory. HTH.

Ah, brown AND yellow, good idea. Will try on a small scrap first, I'm just using Wilton colors. Thanks guys! icon_smile.gif

Couldn't you add natural vanilla w/o seeds? You'll get the yummy vanilla flavouring too.

I used a tiny touch of the Wilton brown and I got a peachy kind of color. If you do end up buying...I LOVE FondX's ivory!

Americolor ivory worked for me.

yes, regular brown vanilla works well.

Thanks for all the help gals! I ended up sucking it up and driving the 25 miles to the nearest store that sells cake decorating supplies...picked up the Wilton 'Ivory' and it worked out great. The brown was also giving me that slightly peachy, fleshy color that one of you mentioned. I have a really dark vanilla from Mexico and it has also been known to result in that same color. I'm glad I made the trip, now I'll have the ivory for next time. icon_smile.gif
