IVORY colored Buttercream

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Is there an ideal way to get a really great 'ivory' colored buttercream?
Perhaps mixing just a touch of Americolor chocolate brown into regular white buttercream?
Wilton icing color 'ivory' seems to lean too much towards light orange/peach & is not the color I was hoping for and wondered if anyone has a die hard way to get a true ivory. I don't ordinarily have any problem mixing & arriving @ colors that fit the need, but this one has always had me stumped. Brown color seems to give a 'muddy' look to it. ??? Just skip the wilton altogether? birthday.gif

A touch of Americolor Ivory or Gold gel will do ya.

I keep both brands because there is not too much overlap.

Ateco ivory is good or you can just add vanilla until you get the shade you like.

Also, you can neutralize the orange (red and yellow) by adding a *touch* of blue.

I also use Americolor ivory - but once found myself without and had to use a touch of brown, which comes out "peachy" and you have to add a touch of yellow to bring it back to ivory.

I have used part butter Crisco in my buttercream frosting. More like 2 parts white and 1 part butter Crisco.

Using regular (brown) vanilla also helps.
