Copper would be the one.. I usually add a little chocolate brown to it, but just a little. icon_smile.gif

The Copper color (wilton) will work. I tried it in fondant and it turned out fine, but I would add just a little at a time depending on how much icing you have. icon_smile.gif

I guess it would depend on what flesh color you need to achieve. I either use Wilton ivory or varying amounts of Wilton brown.
