    I also tried her tip this week and was very pleased with how the colors came out. Your collection is just wonderful!

    I love the pure ivory on the butterfly and flower! I've been in love with the contrast between ivory and white lately, but I don't think I'm making my ivory dark enough. I love how your ivory looks!

    Yes, that daisy is straight Ivory. Just go little by little until you see how it changes and reaches the softness you want. I was amazed. So, I actually used NO white and instead of black, I used a brown/chocolate. So only thing black is the pearls in the ladybug eyes. And using the lighter sanding sugars (like in Easter sets), it blended without losing the ivory effect. I love using sanding sugar on cookie.

    The "purple" flower really turned out very mauve-lavender. But both pictures show it darker than it was. They were being mailed so had to be sealed and boxed for my customer...would have loved to plate them and add ribbons to really show them off!
    Blessings, Donna B.

    Love the shades you ended up with Donna. I did this today and posted the icing bottles on my FB page - 17 colors, including white and ivory (trying to use up all my leftovers). My grandniece came to visit her grandparents and came over to decorate her first set of cookies. Love that you can not only add ivory, but the trick to adding black icing and not gel to get the make the other colors.

    Thanks Donna. I never would have thought to use just straight ivory. I love it.

    I love the whole color palette. Much more sophisticated than the colors I usually use. Can't wait to try it.
