Can someone please help me and let me know what color wilton dye would I use on my royal icing to achieve a champagne color rose, not the pink champagne color just the champagne color. I have a wedding shower cake to do in a couple of weeks and can't seem to get it right. PLEASE HELP and any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hope this reply will only post once - we seem to be covered up in multiples LOL! Champagne color is so subjective - to me, champagne is a very slightly golden ivory-based color. If that is what you are looking for, I'd start with either Wilton or Americolor ivory and add a bit of golden yellow - a tiny bit. If you can't get ivory, use the smallest amount of brown instead and add the golden highlight. My Americolor ivory actually looks like brown and yellow combined when you water it down (or use their airbrush color, which is watered down pigments LOL). HTH - good luck!
