My bride wants ivory MMF. Not beige, not plain off-white that it is normally. How do I achieve this?

Been using wilton's ivory color for 16 yrs. Love it. Never had a problem with it turning any color but ivory. The ones that have the problem are using too much. hth

Try some with a very small bit of brown food coloring gel. I wouldn't add it to the whole bunch of fondant. Start with a softball size ball of fondant and add a drop of gel with a toothpick and see how that blends first.

I just made some fondant ivory. Didn't add much. Actually ended up using a little gold pearl dust on them (they were small flowers) to get them more ivory colored. I have had a problem with my buttercream turning too orangy with the Wilton ivory. It takes very little! And I find it darkens a little over time. But that's with buttercream. I didn't have that problem with fondant. Good luck!

I've used the Wilton Ivory color in bc, fondant AND lightweight plaster. Every one of them turned a nasty rancid orangy color. I'd never use it again unless I wanted something to look rancid orange.
