also, wilton makes ivory color. just a touch of that would do. also using your dark vanilla would get it also.

Be careful with Wilton Ivory, if you add just a touch too much it turns the icing a putrid orange color.

I used Americolor Ivory and it worked great. You've gotten great advice about adding just a tiny bit. I learned the hard way and had to make a new batch of fondant. A little color goes a long way!

With my lime green & ivory cupcakes I used a touch of brown then added a smaller amount of yellow, always start with tiny amounts of coloring because they go a long way especially with light colors

The best way to keep yourself from adding too much color to fondant or gumpaste is to break off a dime sized piece of fondant, add a dot of color to that, knead it in and then blend in your color a little at a time to your big batch.

I learned this the hard way REAL quick. Wilton ivory is beautiful in very tiny amounts only. thumbs_up.gif
