you can use a combination of yellow and brown.... just a touch of both...add very little color at a time. I'm sorry I cannot be more precise... Mixing colors sort of comes naturally to me so i do it withouteven thinking...so cannot tell you any exact quantities. HTH icon_smile.gif

I've used yellow and brown too. It works well, but just a drop at a time!!!!

Just a drop of brown has worked well in the past for me. When I say drop I mean just a tiny little bit. Use a tooth pick . You can always add more but can't take it out.

I agree, just a "touch" of brown works great. thumbs_up.gif

Can you use just a pinch of cocoa powder in with the icing sugar to make ivory colored fondant? I have no brown coloring left.

You're making things far too complicated.

You're always using fake vanilla (and shortening instead of butter) to keep white frostings a stark, chalky white, even if they end up tasting like <censored>.

So to make your fondant an ivory color, use REAL vanilla extract to flavor it. (And if you have a recipe that can use butter instead of shortening, use it.)

I have used a little bit of cocoa powder and it came out well.
