I think she has used a flesh tone colour, my guess is that it is paprika/flesh by Sugarflair.

Maybe with tiny amounts of orange and pink? I achieved flesh-colored fondant mixing those two basic Americolors, as they were the only ones I had to do the job at the timeâ¦

BUT! --- Whatâs that âcan not and donât know how toâ stuff?! icon_smile.gif Your cakes are stunning, you have an eye and a touch for the details, and you have worked with fondant extensively â of course you can! icon_smile.gif

Iâve only played with fondant for less than a year and I just made a suitcase and purse cake set last week â it is not hard at all! In fact, it is a lot of fun, and you can go wild with the details! One of the easy parts is that you can cover the top and the sides of this particular rectangular cake separately, that way avoiding the corners (which I have issues with on square cakesâ¦) De-construct it in you mind and youâll see that there are not that many elements to this particular design and Iâm sure yours would turn amazing â just like your friend would want it! icon_smile.gif Good luck!

Or Ivory with a dab of apricot or copper would probably do the trick as well

How do you think she gets the 2nd layer design? It looks like it might be a chocolate transfer directly on the fondant.
Dooes anyone know how to do that?
