Colour is added to give the custard a hint of yellow. You can totally skip it.
If you don’t have icing sugar, you can powder the regular sugar in a blender to make a powder. Just add 1 tbsp of extra cornstarch to the recipe.
While making the custard, it is important to dissolve the powder in little milk to avoid lumps. If you still have lumps in your custard, you can pass it through a soup strainer.
