A client wants her buttercream to have a yellowish tinge. My IMBC is a bit yellower than regular but not enough.

Anyone know how to get that yellowish tinge? Add coloring or maybe a more intense butter recipe?

Maybe add a bit of yellow icing instead of straight coloring. I do that when I'm trying to get a really pale color, so maybe it would work for a "tinge"

I just use a toothpick to measure a color if I want it very pale..... just add a dot, and mix.......you can always add more, but you can't take it out.....
