Jack, cream in the UK is most commonly what Finnmouse calls BE Bone, made with one copy of the albino gene and one copy of the extreme dilution ('ce'). These mice tend to have superb type like the PEW :)

Mouseling, I found it incredibly difficult to choose as well. I spent months pouring through books and websites looking at pictures and learning all the genetics and I thought BE Creams were the variety for me. Then I got some doves in a litter and I was hooked, dove is the most beautiful of all mouse colours (not that I'm biased or anything :D ). I never gave dove a second thought before when I'd only seen pictures, they were just boring grey mice. Black is another one I didn't think I'd like from pictures, but when I actually saw a black, it was very, very beautiful. The best thing to do is go to shows and see lots of different mice and talk to their breeders.
