hmm I am not sure as I have never made that color, but right from the off I am thinking start with yellow then slowly add brown?

I use a colour called 'Caramel / Ivory' by Bennets (UK brand). Depending on the amount you add it will give you cream, beige and tan.

Maybe keep adding brown a little at a time until you get the shade. Remember the colors deepen as they set. This is what I did to achieve the color grey I needed for an elephant gumpaste accent I needed.

Thanks! These are strange colors, I know...when the lady sent me the pics, the colors looked peach to me...but apparently they are cream, beige, and tan! ....I think I finally mixed a color that looks close to it. I wish I had Kelly75's caramel! That sounds great! I think I will try the yellow and brown now and see if that is better. Thanks you guys!! icon_smile.gif
