& if so, what's the best way to go about it? To cover a cake to look like a face to place some small fondant pieces on as cheeks/eyes/nose/ears
Thanks for any advice
Ivory works great, or a touch of copper.
I usually begin by adding tiny amounts of pink, buttercup yellow and brown and adjust accordingly. be sure to keep it VERY light though, or you'll look too artificial. HTH
I used just a tiny bit of the Wilton peach and that works for me.
I use just copper, and just a touch.
As you can see, there are a lot of ways to achieve flesh tone. I have found copper can be too red so I use Ivory. If it needs a little pinking up, I add just a touch of peach. Experiment with any of these suggestions until you achieve the flesh tone you are looking for. HTH!
I actually use a flesh colored powdered coloring just the other day. I thought it turned out a really good 'flesh' color.
I use a combination of ivory and copper.
I have a gel color from Country Kitchen that I got at my local supply store that is actualy "flesh tone'. I used it on my last adult themed cake. It worked realy well. HTH
wow, there's loads of different ways to try out. I'll make a note of them all to try out to see which I prefer.
Thank-you for so many responses!
