I have this cake to do, but can't figure out what color to use for the cake. Anyone know? I apologize if it is a cake from here, as the bride sent me a picture.

If you'd like us to tell you what color(s) to mix to achieve a particular color, name the color. The link doesn't workit asks for a passcode.

It looks like a deep beige using brown.
Pretty cake, there is a lot going on. I love the very tiny piping but very time consuming and needs a steady hand. I wish I could do that.

You could use brown vanilla.

Maybe brown and ivory? I'd do tests with the icing before the actual making of the cake...

I know when I make mocha or coffee cake icing, adding the coffee makes it to that shade of color. But I would think just tinting or adding a tiny dot of brown would make it that beigy color.

I read something along those lines.

To add a little bit of brown to white....

Then if you want it to go grayish...add a tiny bit of black.

If you want it to go a bit pinkish, add a little bit of pink.

And someone said to add a touch of gold or ivory for that golden champagne color.

You are going to have to experiment a little.

Thank you very much! I was thinking it to be an ivory, beigey color, but wasn't sure even on that!

To me it looks like about 5 or 6 drops brown to 1 drop black.

I think if she uses the buckeye brown from chef master, or another reddish brown, it would take care of that slight pinkish tint. It has red undertones I normally add a touch of green to to nutralize.
