How can you tint classic buttercream icing ivory? My best friend wants her wedding cake to be cream colored – how can I get a true cream color?

You can buy ivory icing color – it is a concentrated gel formula that helps you achieve the exact shade you want without thinning your icing. When coloring icing for any project, color all the icing you'll need for that project at the same time – it's very difficult to "match" colors if you run out!
