I am doing a Barbie shape cake for my daughter's Birthday tomorrow and it's Barbie in a bathing suit. How do i make skin color icing?? It says to use Copper, but i don't have any copper.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Ha, KiddiKakes,

I found that out today! I'm doing Strawberry Shortcake for Sat. I was mixing the colors & baking the cakes today. I put too much copper & it turned out an indian color. VERY PRETTY! I added a little red to it & it made a pretty red/brown color for Strawberry Shortcakes hair color! Cool!

wilton has a "white flesh" color in the cinderella paste set if you want to buy the whole set but I think you could try a lil brown with a lil yellow or maybe peach
