I am making a cake for an anniversary party and they want ivory/cream colored BC with white accents. It is on July 31st so I don't want to add butter to Indydebi's bc since I want it to withstand the heat. Do I add a touch of yellow or maybe brown to make it an ivory? Is there an ivory coloring out there? I appreciate any advice. TIA icon_biggrin.gif

Use real vanilla instead of clear vanilla.

Wilton also makes an ivory color, just use a small amount of it.

Yep, just use the brown vanilla. It's the perfect shade!

Americolor has ivory also. As with the Wilton, you don't need much.

TexasSugar & Leah_s, can I ask what brand vanilla you use that gives you a nice ivory colour? I use Watkins pure vanilla extract, or Watkins double strength, but neither one makes my icing look very ivory. Maybe a trace of ivory but not really enough to pass for it.

Thanks so much!

Would using some of the butter-flavored Crisco work?
