I tried Wilton Rose and flesh tone, Chefmate Ribbon pink and brown, I swear I just cannot get it. PLEASE post if you know how!!!!! If not, please bump me until I can check this again. (I am the moron who took orders for 5 cakes in 2 days and I am swamped. )

This is from a mixing chart I have (can't remember where I got it) but to get salmon you would use one part red red and 6 parts yellow. HTH

I did a quick google check and everyone I found either added white to pink, or added yellow to pink. Good luck!
