I need to mold a baby for a cake topper for a baby shower. It is for a Hispanic family and I am unsure what color petal dust I need to use to get the flesh tone correct. Can anyone help me?

Well, we come in different colors, from pale ivory to deep tan. I don't color things with petal dust but usually to get the right color I will use a blend of ivory and brown gel colors...start with ivory, add brown to get to the shade you want. It's better to err on the lighter side of things if you're not sure.

Thanks so much. Maybe it's a weird question to ask. I have never used anything other than the flesh tone petal dust and obviously it's way too light. This is for a very close friend and I just don't want to mess it up!
