What do you use to get a peachy flesh color for fondant? I'm making a cake with a fairy (my first humanish figure - I'm a little nervous) and I need to make some peachy colored fondant for her skin. I'm not sure what color(s) to use.

copper works best

Next time you are at Michaels or Hobby Lobby look at the character colors and see if any of them have flesh tone. My store was clearancing some of them out so I'm not sure which colors they have. I know Tinkerbell and Strawberry Shortcake have flesh tones in their colors.

I use Ivory and add just a 'touch' of pink. Just the tiniest bit of pink gives the ivory that peachish tint.

I agree with Mensch, a tiny bit of copper works best.
