Ok, I had this problem and figured it out - New KDE has moved this.

Right click on desktop --> Configure Desktop --> Background. Under the image
of the monitor is a button "Advanced Options" --> click it. Now you'll see a
section "Background Icon Text" with 2 color buttons. One on top is the one
your likely looking for labeled "Text color:. Click it and set your Icon
text colors.

HTH, Curtis.
