"Banana Cream, non-streaky, non-reactive light ivory. CiM calls is a pale yellow, and it does have a creamy overtone, but that fades with long working times. It looks like Dark Ivory in the unworked rod, but gets lighter when heated. This - worked fairly fast, retains a bananary creaminess." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"I love this color, it is a beautiful pale creamy yellow, literally the color of mashed  bananas. It really comes alive when used as a base for silver glass. I made a heart with Gaia stringer, Banana Cream fumed to a golden yellow! This effect was less noticeable when a striking glass was used. Banana Cream melts beautifully with no shocking or bubbling."

"Described as an opaque pale yellow, this colour does not disappoint! This melts like a dream and is totally fuss free! I did notice while working it did go a very pale off white, but this did strike to a stable pale yellow without any help from me. I made polka beads with Effetre Lavender and silvered ivory. The silvered ivory did spread more but that is more characteristic of ivory, but you can see that there was no reaction with either the silver or the ivory. The two beads on the left are Gelly's Sty on Painted Hills."

"Banana Cream is a soft, pale yellow. The color of this opaque glass is similar to fresh churned honey butter. The warm tone nicely bridges the color gap between Buttermilk and Painted Hills. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing." Read more at Heather's blog.

"Banana Cream melted smoothly with no shockiness, and no bubbles. It is a new color to the 104 palette. It is similar to Painted Hills, but Banana Cream is a bit more creamy yellow compared to the bit more golden hue of the Painted Hills. Encased with Lemon Drop it is very pretty and has some rosy hue spots on it. It is a gorgeous butter yellow hue on both the Tuxedo and the Black Ivory."
