I need a light beige icing color for a guitar cake and a not so dark brown. Does anyone know what colors I need to use?

For light beige, just use colored vanilla instead of the clear and for a not so dark brown, color some of the beige with a dab of brown food coloring or use chocolate icing and add white to lighten it up.

Wilton's sells an "Ivory" gell paste is that what you are looking for?

Adding a small amount of cocoa will tint your icing as well

When I need a light brown color I use peanut butter. If I need it a little darker I use chocolate. I play around with color all the time. If I use the peanut butter I always make sure that people know.
