ANyone give me advice on what color I should use to give my fondant cream colored to go with a gold bow? Should I use a little brown, or beige? I have to make sure I don't mess up the color and it will go with gold accents?

Thanks so much

I have used a touch of Wilton ivory as it has that beige and would look nice. Don't use too much and you should get the color you want.

I like to use ivory and add just a bid of cooper but very little though!

I agree with the Ivory/Copper combo. Just be very careful, a little goes a very long way icon_smile.gif [/quote]

Ditto on the ivory/copper, AND double ditto on adding your color just a touch at a time.

The adage that you can add more, but you can't take it out is never more true than when working with food color.

I use Americolor. I use a very small amount of brown VERY SMALL. It always works for me. If it gets to dark they have White color and you can tone it down with that.

I used Americolors Ivory and it gives a very nice off white creamy color. I only used very small amounts of the color

AWESOME feedback! I ended up using Wilton Ivory color very slowly and I'm happy with the outcome. I want to try others but don't have time to order those colors or brands.. Thank you everyone sooo much! So sweet because of you!
