I am preparing BC icing for a wedding cake and decided I would make it look a darker shade of ivory, and added a drop of gel brown coloring, now it looks pink to me.  It looked more ivory before I added the brown because I used reg color vanilla flavoring, what can I do to make it look ivory again??  Please...

I would add a little more vanilla.

AThank you, That's exactly what I did, but on one of the threads I read on here it said to neutralize with a little bit of blue color which I did and that really helped tone down the pink.... Surprised it turned pink with brown color, was really disappointing but all is good now. Thanks again for your suggestion, really helps!!!

AJust future reference...Americolor makes an Ivory that I absolutely adore! Maybe you could try that next project
